SANAA, Yemen (AP) — With helicopter gunships hovering overhead, at least 20 troops from a Saudi-led Arab coalition, including Yemeni expatriates, came ashore Sunday in the southern port city of Aden on what military officials called a "reconnaissance" mission, as fighting raged between Iranian-backed Shiite rebels and forces loyal to the nation's exiled president.
Rory McIlroy produced another grandstand finish, winning the last two holes to defeat Jim Furyk 1-up in the semi-finals of the WGC World Match Play Championship at San Francisco's Harding Park Golf Club on Sunday. He then drained a 44-foot eagle putt at the last to stun the veteran American, playing in his first World Match Play semi-final at his 16th attempt. For McIlroy it will be his second World Match Play final having lost to Hunter Mahan in the 2012 championship game. In the final, McIlroy will play American journeyman Gary Woodland who hit back to defeat England's Danny Willett in a semi-final no-one expected.
