Expert: War in Yemen is an extension of wars in region
Yemen's southern separatists said Saturday they had taken control of the southern port city of Aden, the seat of the internationally recognized government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, following days of clashes with government loyalists.

Dr. Abdullah Alahmed, a geopolitical expert based in Damascus, shared his views.
