Sudan Sends Troops to Yemen

A battalion of 300 Sudanese troops arrived in Yemen's southern port city of Aden on Saturday, military officials said, bolstering Saudi-led Arab forces trying to keep out the Houthis.
"Our troops in Yemen are ready to do their military task under the command of the alliance military leadership," Sudanese Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Khalifa Alshami said. "Sudan is committed to restoring legitimacy in Yemen."
The Saudi-led Arab coalition says its aim is to restore former president Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi's government to power in Yemen. At least 5,400 people have died since it began an air offensive in March.
The Arab coalition spokesman, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri confirmed the arrival of the Sudanese troops to Arab television channels. They will join contingents from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain on the ground.
