Yemen's Prime Minister accused southern separatists of an attempted coup after they took over the government headquarters amid fierce clashes in the city of Aden.
 
Prime Minister Ahmed bin Dagher called on the Saudi-led military coalition, which has been backing the government against Houthi rebels in control of much of the north, to intervene in its defence.
 
Security sources and residents said fighting appeared to have spread to most of the southern port city of Aden, throwing Yemen into further chaos after years of civil war.
 
The southern separatists ─ who want the return of an independent state that ended with Yemen's unification in 1990 ─ had backed President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi's government against the Houthis but tensions between the two sides had been on the rise.
