SANAA, Yemen – Yemeni officials say the country's prime minister has returned to the volatile southern city of Aden, months after being targeted in a suicide bombing that forced him to leave the country.
They say Khaled Bahah's return on Monday is aimed at establishing a permanent government presence in Aden, even as the country is torn apart by civil war.
A Saudi-led coalition is fighting to force Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, to loosen their grip on the capital, Sanaa, and other parts of Yemen. Since the Saudi-led campaign began last March, more than 5,800 people have been killed.
Also Monday, security officials say a missile killed a judge's family of eight in Sanaa's neighborhood of Nahda.
All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren't authorized to speak to reporters.
