(ROUGH CUT) NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: A wounded supporter of Yemen's president is seen crawling, then being dragged to safety under intensive gunfire on Tuesday (April 7), in video filmed by one of the man's colleagues. The colleague, a member of the Popular Committees militia, fighting for President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in the southern Yemeni city of Aden, said it showed the wounded comrade being pulled out of the line of fire. Reuters has no other source beyond this to confirm the contents of the images. A Saudi-led air campaign to reinstate Hadi has failed to stop Iran-allied Houthis fighters, who already control the north of the country and Yemeni capital Sanaa, from pushing into the heart of Aden.
