Eight civilians killed amid renewed clashes in Yemen's Aden
At least eight civilians were killed on Friday in Aden, the temporary seat of Yemen's internationally-recognised government, amid renewed fighting between southern separatists and government forces, medical sources said.

 

Separately, a brother of Abdel-Malek al-Houthi, the leader of the Iran-aligned Houthi movement against which the government and separatists are nominally allied, was killed in the capital Sanaa.

 

The group blamed the killing of Ibrahim Badreddin al-Houthi on "the treacherous hands affiliated with the U.S.-Israeli aggression and its tools", without providing details.

 

The escalation in violence complicate U.N. efforts to end the more than four-year-old conflict which has killed tens of thousands of people and pushed the country to the brink of famine.
