Southern Yemeni separatists declared a state of emergency in the port city of Aden Sunday and vowed to overthrow the internationally recognized government.The announcement underscores rising tensions between southern separatists, who are allied with the United Arab Emirates, and President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi's government over control of the southern half of Yemen.Hadi's government has been energized after Saudi Arabia deposited $2 billion into the central bank to shore up the rial. Prime Minister Ahmed bin Daghr, who has been struggling to assert his government's control over southern Yemen, has announced the first state budget since 2014 .It added that it banned military forces and officials from northern Yemen, including members of Hadi's government, in southern provinces.Hadi's government controls the central bank in Aden, but has struggled to enforce its authority in the southern and eastern parts of Yemen that it controls, or eject the Houthis from lands they run around the capital Sanaa.
