UAE troops take part in Yemen offensive in Marib - in pictures
Pro-government forces pushed Houthi rebels from several areas of Marib on Monday and surrounded a rebel-held district in the west of the province. The commander of an Emirati contingent taking part in the campaign said the provincial capital had been secured. Although the rebels have abandoned many areas of the province, the advance of Yemeni troops and the Saudi-led regional coalition, which includes the UAE, is being slowed by mines laid by the rebels.
