Jordan began evacuating its nationals from crisis-hit Yemen on Friday, the kingdom's Foreign Ministry has said.

The ministry, it added, would maintain its efforts to evacuate all Jordanians from Yemen.

Ministry spokesman Sabah al-Rafie told The Anadolu Agency earlier that the number of Jordanians in Yemen was estimated at between 500 and 1,000, including 350 university students.

Several Arab states – including Jordan – have joined a Saudi-led campaign against Yemen's Shiite Houthi movement.
