Aden (AFP) - Government forces in Yemen now control the key Bab al-Mandab Strait through which much of the world's maritime traffic passes after retaking it from Shiite rebels, a general said Friday.

"The Bab al-Mandab Strait is now under the total control of our troops," General Turki Ahmed told AFP.

Ahmed was one of the commanders of an offensive that Thursday seized the island of Mayyun (Perim) between the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea.

The narrow waterway, which separates Yemen from Djibouti only some 20 miles (32 kilometres) away, funnels shipping to and from the Suez Canal, which lies at the north end of the Red Sea.

President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and his government returned to Aden last month following six months in exile, after loyalist forces regained control of the port city and four other southern provinces from the rebels.
