SANAA: Yemeni airport officials say Yemen’s President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi has arrived in the southern port city of Aden following nearly six months of exile in Saudi Arabia.

Hadi’s return Tuesday comes after he fled Yemen by sea in March as Shiite Houthi rebels and their allies moved on his last refuge in the south. Hours later, a Saudi-led coalition began launching airstrikes aimed at pushing back the Houthis. The Houthis captured the country’s capital, Sanaa, last September and it remains in their control.

Yemen’s Cabinet arrived in Aden last week after months of self-imposed exile. Pro-government troops routed the rebels in Aden earlier this summer and have since made a push north.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.
