ADEN - A bombardment in Aden by the Houthi militia and forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh killed 43 people and injured 173 on Sunday, the health ministry of Yemen's exiled government said two days after declaring the city had been liberated.

Clashes continued in the city's northern districts of Dar al-Saad and Sabr, and in Maashiq in Crater district as local fighters backed by the Riyadh-based government and a Saudi-led Arab coalition pushed to seize remaining parts of Aden.

Those fighters and Yemeni army forces loyal to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi seized Aden's airport and other central areas in a sudden advance last week that broke months of deadlock in the city.

Their advance was aided by Gulf efforts to train and equip Yemeni army forces loyal to Hadi and transport them to Aden, Yemen's second largest city and home to the main seaport.
