ADEN - Sounds of explosions and shooting were briefly heard in an area near a presidential place in Yemen's eastern port of Mukalla on Monday, residents said.

The nature of the shooting was not clear, but residents said there could have been clashes between pro-government troops and forces loyal to a regional military commander who was among top officers who voiced support for anti-government protesters earlier on Monday.

Residents later said the shooting had ended and there did not seem to have been any casualties.
