Fighting flares in Yemen's Aden after separatist 'coup' attempt

Posted February 01, 2018

Last week, the STC gave President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's government an ultimatum - either dismiss Prime Minister Ahmed bin Daghr and his cabinet or face being overthrown.

The internationally recognised government of Yemen has been fighting for almost three years to regain control of the country after losing the capital Sanaa and much of the north to the Houthi rebels.

Aden has been the government's base since 2014 when Houthi rebels from the North took control of Yemen's capital, Sana'a.

At least 36 people have been killed and 185 wounded due to the violence in Aden since Sunday, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Hadi s government has accused the separatists of attempting a coup in Aden, opening yet another front in the country s devastating conflict.
