Armed Yemeni militiamen loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, also known as the Popular Resistance Committees, sit on tanks, one flying the separatist Southern Movement flag, outside the Yemeni special forces command base in the southern city of Aden on March 19, 2015, following clashes with Yemeni special forces opposed to the country’s president. Deadly clashes forced the closure of the international airport in Yemen’s main southern city Aden, where the conflict-ridden country’s leader fled after militia forces seized the capital. At least six people were killed and 20 wounded after fierce fighting broke out between supporters and opponents of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, security sources said. AFP PHOTO / STR
