More than 800 al-Qaeda militants have been killed in an offensive by Yemeni government forces and its Arab allies.

The operation was carried out in the port city of Mukalla. It's part of a wider offensive aimed at securing parts of the country captured by jihadist militants.

The Saudi-led coalition said in a statement the offensive led to many militants fleeing the city they had held for a year.
The statement added that this comes as part of the joint international efforts to defeat the terrorist groups in Yemen, and support the Yemeni elected government to extend its influence and control over the Yemeni cities.
