Yemen on the brink: Civil war, famine and a growing separatist movement

With Yemen's capital Sana'a already under the control of Houthi militias, now there's fighting in the second city Aden. Southern separatists - backed by the UAE - are locking horns with Saudi-backed government forces. Both Riyadh and the Emiratis are urging restraint. Is this a very localized dispute triggered by a demonstration ban? Or is there trouble among coalition partners who for three years have been fighting Iran-aligned Houthi militias with little to show for it?

Produced by Daniel BARNEY, Alessandro XENOS, Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
