Sectarian clashes kill at least 22 in Yemen

SANAA - At least 22 people were killed in clashes between Shi'ite Muslim rebels and fighters from a Sunni Islamist group in a province under rebel control in rugged northern Yemen, tribal sources said on Thursday.
A source close to the Shi'ite rebels known as Houthis said fighters from a Sunni group known as the Salafi attacked the rebels overnight in Hajja and in the Kataf area of Saada province, an area that has seen intense sectarian fighting in recent months."We blocked the attack in under an hour and 13 people died in Hajja and nine in Kataf," said the Houthi source.
