At least 60 killed in tribal clashes in Yemen
Sanaa: Security officials in Yemen say at least 60 people were killed in weeks of tribal clashes in the country`s north.
The officials said today that the clashes erupted north of Sanaa over land disputes between two tribes.
The conflict intensified when Shiite Hawthis rebels backed one tribe and the al-Ahmar tribe, one of Yemen`s most powerful groups, backed the other.
Meanwhile, other officials say anti-terrorism forces in Aden arrested two men believed to be al-Qaida militants on suspicion of killing an intelligence officer last month.
Yemeni authorities are leading a war against al Qaeda`s local branch, considered by Washington as one of the world`s most dangerous terror groups.
All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak to journalists.
