Yemen appears on the verge of disintegration with three major factions now battling over the fate of the country. The internationally-recognised government has been forced from its headquarters by separatists seeking to carve out their own state in the south.

It is a major blow to President Abd Rabu Mansour Hadi, who was already battling Houthi rebels in the north. It also signals divisions in the Saudi-led coalition, whose support is essential to Hadi's war effort.

The Saudis back Hadi, but their allies, the United Arab Emirates, have thrown their weight behind the southern separatists.

So, where do these latest events leave the ongoing war in Yemen?
