Yemeni supporters of the southern seperatist movement stand next to a tank bearing the movement's flag which they confiscated from a military depot, in the southern Yemeni city of Aden on March 27, 2015Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombed rebel camps in Yemen for a second day, as President Barack Obama said the United States shared a "collective goal" with its regional ally to see stability in the war-torn state. Obama offered support to Saudi ruler King Salman in a phone conversation as it emerged the US military had rescued two Saudi pilots forced to eject from their fighter jet in the region on Thursday. A months-long rebellion by Shiite fighters in Yemen has escalated into a regional conflict that threatens to tear apart the impoverished state at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia has vowed to do "whatever it takes" to prevent the fall of embattled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, accusing Shiite Iran of "aggression" and backing the Huthi rebels' power grab.
