Aden oil refinery under assault

North Yemen launched land and air attacks on the south's key oil refinery outside Aden and the south said it feared a major assault soon, Reuter reports from Aden. Aden residents said northern Yemeni aircraft struck at the city's oil refinery, while southern soldiers said their men had driven back a northern force threatening the coastal road between the oil plant and the main part of Aden.
