ADEN - Fighting between government forces and militants in Yemen's volatile south killed several soldiers and 20 rebel fighters, a local official said on Sunday, while military planes bombed two areas killing a yet unknown number of militants.

Five soldiers, one army officer and 20 militants were killed in the violence between Yemen's military and militants close to the city of Zinjibar, he said.

The local official told Reuters army forces were able to regain control of an area west of Zinjibar for the first time since March.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh's government has lost control of some areas in the south after months of political turmoil and mass protests demanding an end to his 33-year old rule.
