SAN'A, Yemen — A clash between troops and civilians at a market in Yemen's restive south on Friday left 13 people dead, including 10 soldiers, a security official said.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media, said the fighting erupted after military vehicles drove into a market in the town of Lawdar in the southern Abyan province.

The move set off a quarrel with the townspeople that eventually escalated into an exchange of gunfire. The official said three of the townspeople died in the clash and one military vehicle was set ablaze.
