Saudi-led helicopters attacked Al-Qaeda militants in Aden overnight in an effort to dislodge them from a stronghold in the southern port city, killing at least 18, medics and a official said Sunday. The assault took place as Arab-backed forces supporting President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi fought to widen their control of Taiz in the southwest of Yemen after breaking a siege there Friday. Medics said a total of 18 people have been killed – 17 suspected militants and one civilian bystander – and at least 23 civilians and militants were wounded.The campaign took place a day after forces loyal to Hadi broke a siege by the Houthis around Taiz, Yemen's third biggest city, about 200 kilometers northwest of Aden.
