Anti-government forces advance on southern Yemen

Fighters from a coalition of local tribes, Popular Resistance Committees and supporters of the southern Yemeni separatist movement, all opposed to the Shiite-Huthi movement, drive a tank at the Al-Anad airbase, north of Aden, on March 24, 2015Anti-government forces advanced towards President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi’s refuge of Aden in southern Yemen, as the embattled leader again pressed the United Nations for help. The Shiite Huthi militia, backed by troops allied to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, clashed with forces loyal to Hadi in at least two southern provinces Tuesday as they pushed on Aden, sources said. In another southern city, Taez, the militia shot dead five demonstrators as protests intensified against the Huthi presence, in what Amnesty International denounced as a “shocking disregard for human life”. The militiamen have seized large parts of Yemen and, in recent days, have been moving towards Aden, where Hadi fled after escaping house arrest in the capital Sanaa last month.
