Al Qaeda militants took control of a western district of Yemen's main port city of Aden on Saturday night, residents said.

"Dozens of Al Qaeda militants were patrolling the streets with their weapons in total freedom in a number of areas in Tawahi.

At the same time, others raised the Al Qaeda black flag above government buildings, including the administrative building of the port," one resident told Reuters.
