Are hopes of ending Yemen’s civil war slipping away?

Yemen’s new unity government was targeted in an attack at Yemen’s Aden airport.

Yemen’s new unity government has come under attack, just a week after it was sworn in.

At least 26 people died when a bomb exploded as the ministers stepped off their plane at Aden airport.

The Saudi-Emirati coalition responded with air raids against Houthi rebels, who deny being behind the attack.

Will the latest setback derail efforts to bring peace to Yemen after six years of war?
