    Earlier in the day, Hadi left his residence in the city of Aden in southern Yemen and fled to an unknown destination. The Houthis offered to pay $100,000 for the arrest of the president, according to local media reports.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A military jet struck the Aden residence of ousted Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi after he had fled the city on Wednesday, a law enforcement source told Sputnik.

    The warplane carried out three airstrikes at the residence, according to the source.

    According to local media, the Aden airport has been shut down due to security concerns.

    In January, Houthis captured the presidential palace and government buildings in the capital Sanaa, forcing Hadi and his government to resign. A month later, the president escaped from house arrest in Sanaa and disavowed his resignation, fleeing to Aden.

    The Houthi tribe is fighting both troops loyal to Hadi in central Yemen and al-Qaeda militants in the south of the country.
