Yemeni anti-rebel forces recapture Aden airport

Yemeni forces backed up by the Arab-led coalition have recaptured Aden's international airport from Houthi rebels as heavy combat took place across the port city following the collapse of a humanitarian truce, the exiled government said.

Forces loyal to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi also took Aden's central district of Khormaksar on Tuesday, and aid sources reported fighting around the port area.

Backed by air support from an Arab coalition, Yemeni forces launched a wide-ranging assault in Aden this week to reclaim territory held by the Iranian-allied Houthis.
