Four provinces of Yemen's formerly independent south, including its main city Aden, said Thursday they would defy all military orders from Sanaa after President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi resigned.
The committee in charge of military and security affairs for Aden, Abyan, Lahej and Daleh, which is loyal to Hadi, said it had taken the decision after the president, who originally hails from the south, stepped down after a deadly standoff with militia in control of the capital.
