Houthi rebels in Yemen continue to gain ground in the southern city of Aden Sunday, despite a Saudi-led airstrike campaign. The French News Agency reports the rebels have taken the provincial government headquarters, including the governor's office, in Aden's Mualla district. VOA’s Vincent Makori reports and later talks with Zaid al-Alaya’a, Sana’a based journalist.
"Because the army is busy, the military is busy, Al-Qaeda came and they took $17 billion Yemeni rials. Can you imagine what Al-Qaeda can do with this amount? I would not be surprised if Al-Qaeda will announce an Islamic state very soon in Yemen because this is the environment for them to flourish." - Yemeni journalist Zaid al-Alaya’a.
