Senegal will send 2,100 troops to Saudi Arabia as part of an international coalition combating Houthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, the West African nation's foreign minister said on Monday. Senegalese President Macky Sall said, after returning from a visit to Saudi Arabia last month, he was considering a request to deploy troops in the Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthi, a Shi'ite Muslim group allied to Iran. Saudi Arabia - the world's top oil exporter and the Sunni Muslim regional rival of Iran - said Houthi forces posed a threat to its security after they captured Yemen's capital and began advancing across the country in September. "The international coalition is aiming to protect and secure the holy sites of Islam, Medina and Mecca," Senegalese Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye told parliament.

By Tom Miles GENEVA (Reuters) - Saudi-led coalition should stop targeting Yemen's Sanaa airport, the United Nations said on Monday, as it prepared a plan to set up an air-bridge to bring humanitarian workers into the country from Djibouti and deliver aid around Yemen. Earlier on Monday, the Saudi foreign minister said the Arab alliance conducting air strikes against Iranian-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen was considering calling truces in specific areas to allow humanitarian supplies to reach the country. "Coalition airstrikes have targeted the runways of Sanaa international airport over the past week, rendering them inoperable," the U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Johannes Van Der Klaauw, said in a statement.
