At least 68 fighters were killed Saturday in fighting between Yemeni troops and Shia rebels in the north, military and tribal sources said even as the UN voiced alarm at ceasefire violations.

The casualties included 28 troops, according to military sources. Tribal sources said the Houthi rebels lost 40 men in heavy clashes near the northwestern town of Haradh that was overrun Thursday by government forces.
