At least 26 people have been killed in clashes between Yemen’s Shia Houthi fighters and al-Qaeda-linked militants in the southern province of al-Bayda.
Heavy fighting led to the deaths of 16 Houthi fighters and 10 Sunni militiamen in Yemen’s al-Bayda city, unidentified security officials and tribal sources said.
Over the past months, al-Qaeda militants have frequently carried out attacks on Yemen’s security forces. The militants have also been engaged in battles against the Shia Houthi fighters.
