SANAA (Reuters) - Yemen's ousted president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi called on the Houthi militia which overran Sanaa in September to quit the city, in a statement read out by al-Jazeera news channel, his first since escaping house arrest and fleeing to Aden on Saturday.

His statement was delivered under the title of president, implying Hadi has rescinded the resignation he made to parliament last month after the Houthis stormed his private residence, and which was never formally accepted by parliament.
