Yemeni Shia militiamen on Tuesday freed a top presidential aide whose kidnapping deepened the country's crippling political crisis, said a person who helped mediate his release.

Chief of staff Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak was handed over to a committee of mediators, 10 days after he was abducted, Hussam al-Shargabi told AFP.

The Huthi militia, who have controlled most of the capital since September, seized the presidential palace last week, prompting President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to offer his resignation.
