Saudi-led forces seize airport in Yemen port city of Hodeida

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Saudi-led forces heading an assault on Yemen’s rebel-held port city of Hodeida seized control of its international airport Saturday, officials loyal to Yemen’s exiled government said, as fierce fighting continued for the starving nation’s main gateway for food shipments.

Engineers worked to clear mines from areas around Hodeida International Airport, just south of the city of some 600,000 people on the Red Sea, the military of Yemen’s exiled government said.
