Yemeni troops killed in clashes with Shiite rebels

Yemeni troops take part in an offensive against extremists in the southern province of Shabwa, on May 7, 2014Seven soldiers and several other people were killed Monday in clashes between the Yemeni army and Shiite Huthi rebels close to the capital, tribal and medical sources said. The clashes erupted after troops tried to expel rebels from a strategic position near Amran controling the road to Sanaa, local officials said. The rebels are suspected of trying to enlarge their sphere of influence as Yemen is split into six regions, pushing out from their mountain strongholds in the far north to areas closer to Sanaa.
