Militiamen in Yemen’s Aden say two Iranian officers captured

Police trooper walks in a creater caused by an air strike on houses near Sanaa AirportBy Mohammed Mukhashaf ADEN (Reuters) – Local militiamen in the southern Yemeni city of Aden said they captured two Iranian military officers advising Houthi rebels, during fighting on Friday evening. Tehran has strongly denied providing any military support for Houthi fighters, whose advances have drawn Saudi-led air strikes in a campaign dubbed "Decisive Storm." If confirmed, the presence of two Iranian officers, whom the local militiamen said were from an elite unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, would deepen tensions between Tehran and Riyadh, who are vying for influence in the Middle East. "They have been put in a safe place and we will turn them over to Decisive Storm to deal with them," the source added. Heavy Saudi-led air strikes and ground combat between armed factions battered southern Yemen on Saturday, killing around 20 Houthi fighters and two rival militiamen, residents and militiamen said.
