The Houthi group has offered a 20-million-Yemeni-riyal bounty (roughly $93,000) for the arrest of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, the news service of Yemen's Defense Ministry has said.

"A reward of 20 million Yemeni riyals will be given to anyone who arrests Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi," the service said in a text message.

Sources close to Hadi said he was still in the southern province of Aden, despite the advance of Houthi militants towards the province.

"Hadi is still in Aden," one source told on condition of anonymity, dismissing reports that the embattled leader had fled the city in the face of the Houthi advance.

Yemen has remained in a state of chaos since last September, when the Houthis took over Sanaa, from which they have since sought to extend their control to other parts of the country.
