ADEN - Six militants were killed in clashes with Yemeni government forces in the southern province of Abyan, a local official said on Monday, raising to 11 the number of Islamists killed in the area in two days.

Four people, including a soldier, were also wounded in the fighting in the provincial capital Zinjibar on Sunday night.

On Saturday, a local official said the army killed five suspected al-Qaida militants in Zinjibar, one of whom was Iraqi and another Saudi.

Abyan has been in a state of anarchy since militants, suspected of ties to al- Qaida, began seizing cities in the coastal region several months ago. The government said it had "liberated" Zinjibar from Islamist fighters in September.
