Yemen’s Hadi in Aden after months in exile


Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi landed in Aden on Tuesday, airport sources said, the first time he had been in the southern port city since he left for Saudi Arabia as Houthi militias closed in on it in March.

Last week, Prime Minister Khaled Bahah and seven ministers returned to Aden to take up residence in the city, also after nearly six months in exile.

Meanwhile the Arab led coalition continued its airstrikes against Houthi militias in several Yemeni cities.

An alliance of Arab states intervened in the impoverished country’s civil war in March with the aim of restoring Hadi, and have helped drive the Iranian-allied Houthi militias back from Aden.
