Yemen's Shia Houthi rebels have made more gains in the city of Aden, despite air strikes by a Saudi-led coalition.

Fighting in the southern city has intensified as rebels and forces loyal to President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi battle for control.

Countries including China have stepped up efforts to evacuate their citizens amid the worsening humanitarian crisis.

The Red Cross has been given permission by the coalition to bring aid into Yemen by plane.

Reports stated that the humanitarian situation in the city was "dire" and that bodies were beginning to pile up on the streets.
