Yemen conflict: Houthi rebels driven back in Aden

Pro-government militiamen have made further advances against Houthi rebels in the southern Yemeni city of Aden.

Fighters backed by Saudi-led coalition air strikes were reported to have taken the main seaport as well as the neighbouring district of Mualla.

It comes a day after they regained control of the international airport.

Aden has been a key battleground since the Houthis and allied army units forced President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee the country in late March.

Medics told the Reuters news agency dozens of combatants and civilians had been killed in the past two days of fighting.
