Sanaa: A top aide to Yemen`s President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi denied Wednesday that the embattled leader has fled the country as rebel forces approached his refuge in the southern city of Aden.

Hadi has been transferred to a "secure location within Aden" the official said, shortly after a presidential source said the president has fled abroad by a helicopter.
