Houthi tanks advance into central Aden district - witnesses

ADEN (Reuters) - Yemeni Houthi fighters and army allies advanced in a column of tanks into central Aden, the main foothold of loyalists of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, witnesses said.

The advance into the Khor Maksar district came despite a week of Saudi-led air strikes against the Houthis aimed at reversing their gains on the battlefield.
