A series of airstrikes by a Saudi-led coalition have shaken Yemen’s capital amid the group’s campaign against Shiite rebels and their allies.

The strikes in Sanaa come as the rebels, also known as Houthis, pushed south toward the port city of Aden, Yemen’s economic hub and the latest seat of power for those allied with embattled president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

Mr Hadi fled Yemen last week, sparking the airstrike campaign.

Today marked the fifth day of the airstrike campaign against the Houthis and their allies, largely forces loyal to deposed leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The strikes have targeted fighters, jets, air defence systems and Scud missile launch pads that could threaten Saudi Arabia.
