SANAA - Presidential guards loyal to Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh clashed in the town of Mukalla on Thursday with army units backing opposition groups who are demanding his ouster.

The clash wounded one person and highlighted the tension in Yemen, where top generals, diplomats and tribal chiefs defected this week to the side of democracy protesters who have been camped out in central Sanaa for some six weeks.

Army and presidential guards -- a force headed by Saleh's son Ahmed -- clashed earlier this week in Mukalla, a coastal city in the Hadramout region, leaving one dead on each side.
