Arab military exercises planned for Saudi Arabia have raised speculation that Riyadh is considering land operations in Yemen, after three weeks of airstrikes that failed to halt advances by Houthi fighters now in control of most of the country.With the Houthi advance showing no sign of slowing, the prospect is growing that Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies could launch a land war in Yemen, the poorest country in the Arabian Peninsula.Military officials and residents said Al-Qaeda fighters clashed briefly with members of one of Yemen's largest brigades outside Mukalla.Bahah called on Yemen's armed forces to support the "legitimate" Yemeni government in exile, a message clearly aimed at army units still loyal to Saleh.The Saudi-led airstrikes appear to have led some army units loyal to Saleh to switch sides and back Hadi's government.
