Yemeni Official: Cabinet Returns from Saudi Exile to Port

Yemeni Official: Cabinet Returns from Saudi Exile to Port

Wednesday, 16 September 2015 08:23 AM EDT

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Yemen's government spokesman says the Cabinet has returned to the country after months spent in exile in Saudi Arabia and is now in the port city of Aden.

Rageh Badie says that as of Wednesday, the government will be working out of Aden, focusing on restoring security and stability to this city — Yemen's second-largest.

The ministers and President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi fled Yemeny earlier this year amid an advance by Shiite Houthi rebels, who captured the capital, Sanaa, last September.

Yemen's conflict pits the Iran-backed Houthis and troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh against an array of forces, including Hadi loyalists, southern separatists, local and tribal militias, and also Sunni Islamic militants.

Pro-government forces recently pushed the Houthis out of several key southern areas, including Aden.
