According to AFP, Houthi militia and anti-government forces took control of al-Anad airport, near Aden.

"The Houthis (Shia militia) took control of Al-Anad airbase," following "limited clashes" with forces loyal to Hadi, the official told AFP.

The airport is located near Yemen's President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi's temporary capital city. 

Just days earlier, the US evacuated all personnel from Yemen, amid security threats.
