Yemen has urged the UN to authorise the use of foreign ground forces to drive back Houthi rebels, specifically in the cities of Aden and Taiz.

Rebels have been advancing in both areas despite air strikes by a Saudi-led coalition.

The strikes began after Yemen sent the UN a similar letter in March requesting military help from Gulf Arab states.

The latest request also urged human rights groups to document "barbaric violations" by Houthis.

The letter, from Yemen's UN ambassador, cited an incident yesterday when at least 32 people were killed while trying to flee Aden in a boat.
