SANAA - Gunmen attacked a Yemeni military patrol in the southern city of Taiz, killing a soldier, Yemen's state news agency said on Friday, in a resumption of clashes between loyalists and opponents of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Separately, in the southern province of Abyan where tribesmen and the military are waging a campaign against Islamists who have seized swathes of territory, officials said an airstrike had killed 10 Islamist fighters.

The agency called the Taiz attackers "anarchic, lawless elements", without specifying their identity. Two other soldiers were wounded, it said.

Taiz has been the scene of months of popular protests demanding the removal of Saleh, who is now in Saudi Arabia where he went for treatment of wounds suffered in an assassination attempt in June.
