Rebel forces withdrew from Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi's palace in his former southern stronghold Aden early Friday after overnight air raids by the Saudi-led coalition, a senior official said.
The rebels had seized the hilltop complex a day earlier after fierce fighting with supporters of Hadi, who has taken refuge in Saudi Arabia.
"The Huthi militia and their allies withdrew before dawn from the Al-Maashiq palace," said the official in Aden, who did not want to be named.
