Saudi warships have evacuated dozens of foreign diplomats from Yemen's main southern city Aden as the kingdom leads an air war against advancing Shiite rebels, state television reported on Saturday.

"Saudi naval forces carried out Operation Tornado to evacuate dozens of diplomats, including Saudis, from Aden," the television said.

The evacuation followed deadly fighting in Aden between supporters and opponents of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, who took refuge in the port city last month after fleeing the rebel-held capital.
