DUBAI- Warplanes launched an attack on the airport of the Yemeni capital Sanaa early on Thursday, residents and an official said.

There was no immediate word on the affiliation of the aircraft, but the assault followed an announcement by Saudi Arabia that it had started a military campaign to defend the government of President Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Hadi's forces, based mainly in the south of the country, are under attack by the Shi'ite Muslim Houthi militia, which has been in effective control of Sanaa since September.
