Sana’a: A mortar and machine gun battle between Shi`ite rebels and pro-government tribesmen in north Yemen drew in government forces overnight, killing at least 19 people and complicating efforts to cement a truce, local officials said.
"Yesterday night there were very violent confrontations. Nine soldiers and pro-government tribesmen were killed as well as about 10 Houthis (rebels)," a local official in the flashpoint Harf Sufyan region said on Thursday.
"It remains very tense after the failure of efforts to stop the fighting between the two sides," he added.
