Yemen Houthi Militia Sweeps Toward Aden in Threat to President

Houthi forces in Yemen backed by allied army units seized a key air base on Wednesday and appeared poised to capture the southern port of Aden from defenders loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, local residents said. The Houthis and their military allies later advanced to within 40km of the city, where Hadi has been holed up since fleeing the group's stronghold in the capital Sanaa last month.
