The president of Yemen has resigned along with his prime minister in protest at the takeover of the capital Sanaa by Shia Houthi rebels, creating a dangerous political vacuum.

President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi said he could not continue after the Houthis failed to honour a peace deal.

Parliament has reportedly refused to accept the resignations.

There are reports of explosions in the southern port city of Aden, where President Hadi has a strong following.
