SANAA - At least 21 people have been killed and dozens wounded in northern Yemen, where Shi'ite Muslim rebels are attacking positions held by Sunni Islamist Salafi fighters with bursts of shelling, a spokesman for the Salafis said on Sunday.

The shelling, which killed three people on Saturday, continued on Sunday afternoon, he said, leaving a total of 21 dead and 48 wounded so far in the latest flare-up.

The conflict in the north, where government also troops tried to crush Shi'ite Houthi rebels before a ceasefire last year, is one of several plaguing Yemen which plans elections next year to replace President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Saleh agreed this week to step down after 10 months of protests to end his 33-year rule.
