Tens of thousands of people, mostly civilians, have since been killed and millions displaced in what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian disaster.
Yemen's new government was formed under a Riyadh-sponsored power-sharing agreement between ministers loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and supporters of the secessionist Southern Transitional Council.
Both are technically fighting the Huthis, but the STC has sought to restore South Yemen's independence from the north after they were unified in 1990.
Secessionists and forces loyal to the central government have sporadically clashed in and around Aden.
The cabinet had arrived in Aden days after being sworn in by Hadi in Saudi Arabia.
It convened for the first time in Aden the day after the attack, holding a moment of silence for those killed in the attack.
