Local vigilantes, Houthis clash in Yemen’s Abyan
According to locals, trucks were seen moving the bodies of dead and injured soldiers in Zanjabar city.
Casualties were also reported among the vigilantes.
Yemen has remained in a state of turmoil since 2012.
Almost one month ago, Saudi Arabia and several other Arab states began an air campaign against Houthi positions across Yemen.
Saudi Arabia says the strikes come in response to appeals by embattled President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi for help against the Houthis, who overran capital Sanaa late last year and have since advanced on other provinces.
The Houthis, for their part, denounce the offensive as an unwarranted “Saudi-American onslaught” on Yemen.Tags: Abyan » Shiite Houthi » Yemen » Yemen's
