Fighters in Southern Yemen Say Pushing Back Houthis

Militiamen in southern Yemen said on Tuesday they had pushed back Iranian-allied Houthi rebels on several fronts, three weeks into a Saudi-led air strikes against the northern movement of Shi'ite Muslim fighters. In the southern port city of Aden, which has seen nearly three weeks of fierce street fighting, Houthi fighters withdrew from the Khor Maksar district, home to an international airport and several foreign missions. The pullout deprives the Houthis of a bridge to downtown districts where they are facing heavy resistance from local fighters.
