Topic: Yemen's exiled president returns to rally forces, over 50 killed


Yemen's exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi returned to the southern port city of Aden on Tuesday to rally forces loyal to him in the country's civil war and oversee a campaign to retake the city of Taiz, a presidency official said. "Twenty-five pro-Hadi fighters were killed in an ambush laid for them by Houthi and Saleh forces at the Bab al-Mandeb, and 20 Houthi fighters were killed in fighting and coalition air strikes," a medic told Reuters by telephone from Taiz, adding that a family of 8 were killed in an air strike on the city. At least 5,700 Yemenis have been killed during seven months in a civil war that has pitted supporters of the exiled government, backed by a Saudi-led Arab coalition, against forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and Houthi militia allied to Iran.
