The United Nations began evacuating international staff from Sana'a on Saturday due to the security situation in the Yemeni capital, where a Saudi-led air campaign has been targeting Shi'ite Houthi forces, a U.N. source said.

The source said, the staff, numbering more than 100, were heading to the airport and were expected to relocate to several countries, including Jordan.
