Houthis seize airport in key Yemeni town: Security sources

AFP , Sunday 22 Mar 2015

The Shiite Houthi militia and its allies on Sunday seized the airport in the battleground central Yemeni town of Taez from forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, security sources said.

Taez is strategically located on the road between Sanaa, which the Houthis overran in September, and the southern city of Aden, to which Hadi fled last month after escaping house arrest in the capital.
