Yemeni military officials say forces loyal to the country's internationally recognized government have wrested control of a military camp from a separatist militia just outside a key southern city.

They say government forces seized control on Saturday of the Elite Force militia's camp, west of the city of Ataq, the capital of oil-rich Shabwa province.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to brief the media.

The camp's takeover came a day after government forces pushed the Elite Force out of Ataq.
