A hotel in Yemen housing senior members of the official government has been hit by a rocket attack.
Yemen’s Prime Minister, Khaled Bahah, escaped unharmed from the attack on the Qasr hotel in Aden, and several people had been killed and injured.
President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi was believed to be out of the country.
The UAE condemned the attack and suggested it was carried out by Houthi rebels and their main local ally, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The UAE foreign minister, Anwar Gargash , tweeted that the attack was further proof that the Houthis and Saleh were determined to destroy Yemen.
