Bahrain Mirror- Reuters: The president of Yemen's Southern Transitional Council (STC) headed with a delegation to the Saudi city of Jeddah on Tuesday after accepting the kingdom's invitation to a summit on the crisis in the Yemeni port city of Aden, the council said.
The STC is part of the Saudi-led military coalition battling the Iran-aligned Houthi movement in Yemen. But the STC, which is seeking self-rule for southern Yemen, has broken with its nominal ally, the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, after seizing its temporary base of Aden.
