ADEN - Eight militants and four Yemeni soldiers were killed in clashes on Thursday, local officials and medics said, near a southern provincial capital seized by Islamist dissidents in May.

The twelve militants and soldiers were killed in the suburbs of Zinjibar, in Abyan province where the militants have seized several towns, while 11 months of protests against President Ali Abdullah Saleh have pushed Yemen to the brink of civil war.

"The bodies of the five soldiers and those of some of the dead armed men have been moved to Aden's medical hospital," a medic told Reuters in the southern port city.
