Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has ordered the arrest of dissident tribal chief Sheikh Sadeq al-Ahmar and his nine brothers, the defence ministry said on Thursday as deadly clashes raged between their fighters and security forces.

"The president has ordered the arrest of the sons of Ahmar to bring them to justice for armed rebellion," the ministry's 26sep.net news website said in a text message.
