Yemen has long been engulfed in a devastating civil war, which has divided the country into two parts. The Houthis, who control large swathes of northern Yemen and the capital Sanaa, have waged war on the southern-based internationally recognised government of President Mansur Hadi for some five years.
Since 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Arab coalition have been militarily supporting President Hadi.
