Saudi-led airstrikes continued in southwestern Yemen on Wednesday, even as Saudi officials declared an end to a month-long aerial offensive against the Houthi rebel group. Yemeni president Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was driven from power by the Houthis, remains in exile despite Saudi efforts to restore him. We discuss the conflict, its causes and its implications for peace and stability in the region.
