World Bulletin / News Desk

The Saudi-backed Yemeni government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi has decided to sever diplomatic relations with Iran.

State-owned Aden television made the announcement on Friday without elaborating.

Bahrain recalled its ambassador from Iran on Thursday.

The Saudi-led coalition intervened in the war in March to try to restore Yemen's government after it was forced into exile by the Huthi, a Shi'a insurgent group.

The intervention comes amid concerns over what Gulf Arab states see as Iran's growing influence in the region.
