A commercial ship docked Friday in Yemen’s Aden, a port official said, the first vessel of its kind to reach the city since it was overrun by anti-government rebels in March.

The Venus ship, operated by United Arab Shipping Co., had a cargo of 350 containers containing products ordered by businesses in Aden, which was retaken by pro-government forces last month, said port deputy director Aref al-Shaabi.
