Yemen's state-run news agency says 12 people have been killed and over 130 wounded in clashes between separatists and pro-government forces in the southern port city of Aden, where the government is based.

The clashes in Aden erupted on Sunday, after a deadline issued by the separatists for the government to resign expired. 

Meanwhile, the international aid organization OXFAM says the violence forced it to shut down its offices in Aden and the city of Taiz.

Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki said late Sunday the coalition's priority is to deliver humanitarian aid, declining to comment on the violence.
