ADEN - Al-Qaida militants took control of a western district of Yemen's main port city of Aden on Saturday night, residents said.



"Dozens of al-Qaida militants were patrolling the streets with their weapons in total freedom in a number of areas in Tawahi. At the same time, others raised the al-Qaida black flag above government buildings, including the administrative building of the port," one resident told Reuters.
