The Shiite Huthi 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 Huthis overran in September, and the southern city of Aden, to which Hadi fled last month after escaping house arrest in the capital.
