Six killed in Yemen fighting

SANA, Yemen (AFP) - Troops loyal to the Yemeni President, Ali Abdullah Saleh, killed six tribesmen and wounded 200 others in a clash north of the capital. Fighting broke out on Sunday in the Har Sufyan region - which is north of Sana and is the heartland of the Bakil tribe - after tribesmen rallied in support of southern troops under attack from northern armoured units.
