Six Yemeni army and police troops were killed and 20 others injured in clashes in the past 24 hours with followers of a Yemeni Shiite rebel leader in the Saada province, a police statement said Sunday. The police did not say if there were casualties among the attackers, led by Abdel-Malek al-Hawthi, a Shiite Muslim. Yemeni troops have often clashed with the al-Hawthi followers in Saada, about 120 kilometers north of the Yemeni capital.
