Yemen civil authorities take charges of the Al Ghaydah airport

Following months of protests, the Saudi-led alliance is handing control of a Yemen airport near Oman to civil authorities roughly a year after seizing it.

    Yemen's civil aviation authorities are back in control of a local airport.

    Until recently, the Al Ghaydah Airport, near Yemen's border with Oman, was supervised by the Saudi-led forces.

    The change in control appears to be inspiring protests in other parts of Yemen.
