Earlier on Wednesday, a source at the Yemeni government told Sputnik that Hadi had left Aden for an unknown destination.
"He had three countries to flee to – Oman, Saudi Arabia and Djibouti. Oman is too far, it's too late to fly to Saudi Arabia, since the airport is under fire, so he had to travel by sea to Djibouti," Sufi told RIA Novosti.
Yemen is currently torn by a civil war, with Houthi militia fighting troops loyal to the country's president and al-Qaeda militants making advances in the south of the country.
Earlier in the day, Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyadh Yassin told Sputnik that Hadi had officially requested the League of Arab States to deploy troops in the country to stop a takeover of his government by ethnic Houthis.
