AFP , Wednesday 8 Apr 2015

Eleven people were killed in Yemen's main southern city Aden overnight in clashes between rebels and forces loyal to fugitive President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, a military source said on Wednesday.

Saudi-led warplanes also struck the port city's rebel-held international airport as the air war in support of Hadi's beleaguered forces entered its third week, another military source said.

Eight rebels and three loyalist militiamen died in the fighting in the northern Dar Saad neighbourhood, the first source said.

The rebel-held Al-Anad air base north of the city, which was a key monitoring post in the US war on Al-Qaeda until last month, also came under renewed coalition air attack.
