DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates will reopen its Yemeni embassy in the southern port city of Aden, the state news agency WAM said on Friday, where Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has set up a seat of power since being driven from the capital.

Sanaa was captured in September by the Shi'ite Muslim Houthi militia, which placed Hadi under house arrest and forced him to announce his resignation. However, parliament never approved the resignation, and on Sunday Hadi fled to Aden.
