Yemen war: Separatists declare autonomous rule in south | BBC

The Aden-based Southern Transitional Council has claimed that they will now rule southern areas of Yemen and is backed by the United Arab Emirates. The Saudi-backed Yemeni government has sent out a warning that this would have disastrous consequences and they are not permitted to declare independence. Yemen’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Al-Hadhrami commented that this is “an announcement of its rejection and complete withdrawal from the Riyadh agreement.” This conflict has been ongoing since March 2015 when the Houthis confiscated much of the west of the country, and President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi was forced to flee.
