Riyadh: The Saudi-led coalition on Sunday said it launched a strike against a "direct threat" to Yemen's government, after southern separatists claimed they had seized the presidential palace in second city Aden.

"The coalition targeted an area that poses a direct threat to one of the important sites of the legitimate government," a coalition statement said, calling on the separatist Southern "Transitional Council" to withdraw from positions seized in Aden or face further attacks.
