Yemen defence minister to resume duties after fleeing Sanaa

Yemen's Defence Minister Major General Mahmoud al-SubaihiYemen’s defence minister was to resume his duties from second city Aden on Sunday after defecting from the Shiite militia which controls the capital, a source in the president’s office said. General Mahmud Subaihi’s overnight escape from Sanaa follows that of Western-backed President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, who has called on ministers to join him in the southern port city to reestablish the government. The minister reached Aden unharmed but at least one of his guards was killed in a firefight with Huthi militiamen during the escape, a military source told AFP. The militia had named Subaihi head of a new security committee when they completed their seizure of power in Sanaa in February.
