ADEN- Houthi fighters opposed to Yemen's president seized parts of the country's third largest city overnight amid growing concern about a conflict diplomats say risks drawing in neighboring oil giant Saudi Arabia and its main regional rival Iran.

The UN Security Council was set to meet to discuss Yemen after President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, a US ally, accused the Iranian-allied Houthi militia of staging a coup against him and appealed to the United Nations for "urgent intervention".

In Taiz, located on a main road from the capital Sanaa to the country's second city of Aden, residents said that Houthi militias took over the city's military airport from local authorities late on Saturday.
