Heavy clashes in Aden airport, alliance accused of cluster bomb use. By Mohammed Mukhashef ADEN (Reuters) - Local fighters battling the rebel Houthi militia in Yemen's port of Aden stormed areas around the airport on Sunday in an operation supervised by the Saudi-led coalition, which also provided air support, the group's spokesman said.
"Special forces from the southern fighters have been prepared and trained for an operation to attack Aden airport," said Ali al-Ahmadi, spokesman for the Southern Popular Resistance. Ahmadi retracted an earlier statement that 40-50 coalition special forces fighters had deployed alongside his militia and Saudi Arabia denied that a major ground operation was under way or that it had put non-Yemeni forces on the ground in Aden. The coalition, which seeks to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, includes eight other Arab states and is receiving logistical support from the United States, Britain and France.

Manipulative and empathetic people both adept at reading emotions - University of Michigan Institute for Social Research. ANN ARBOR—People shouldn’t assume that someone who can easily read their feelings always has their best interests at heart.
Although good emotion-recognition skills might seem like concern and empathy, some people might use these skills to manipulate others, new University of Michigan research suggests. Both manipulative and empathetic people are equally capable of reading others’ emotions, according to U-M researchers, who conducted two studies examining the relationship between narcissism, empathy and emotion recognition. People who score high on the type of narcissism called exploitativeness—”exploiters”—say they find it easy to manipulate people and can make others do what they want.
