Saudi Arabia has launched a military operation in Yemen against Houthi Shia rebels.

Saudi Arabia acted to "defend the legitimate government" of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

The Iran-backed rebels have made rapid gains in recent months, forcing Hadi to flee the capital Sanaa.

Meanwhile, reports say the rebels have seized secret US intelligence files describing US operations in Yemen.
