At least 68 killed in Yemen clashes
Tribal sources said the Huthi rebels lost 40 men in heavy clashes near the northwestern town of Haradh, which was overrun Thursday by government forces.
Some 50 Huthis and 40 loyalists were wounded in the fighting, the sources said.
Clashes intensified early Saturday as government forces attempted to advance towards the Red Sea port of Midi and as the rebels brought in reinforcements, tribal sources said.
Government forces trained in nearby Saudi Arabia crossed the border from the kingdom Thursday and seized Haradh.
