In Yemen , the government has announced liberation of southern province of Aden from Houthi rebel forces.

In a statement on Facebook page, the exiled Vice President Khalid Bahah in Saudi Arabia said his government will work to restore life in Aden and all the liberated cities to restore water and electricity.

Aden, the country's main port and second city has been devastated by weeks of clashes and air strikes.

The government fled from its stronghold in Aden in March as the Houthis pushed towards the provincial capital.

Several Ministers from the exiled government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi yesterday returned to the country for the first time since taking refuge in Riyadh.

They flew by helicopter to a military base on the outskirts of Aden city with instructions to prepare for the government's return.
