30 die in northern assault on Aden

Aden - Northern Yemeni troops in the desert north of Aden fought to break into the besieged southern city as their guns blasted its residential areas, already threatened by a severe water shortage. By afternoon, at least 30 people had been killed and 150 wounded in the fighting and a bombardment by northern shells and Katyusha rockets around the suburb of Dar Saad north of the city centre.
