Call for negotiations in Yemen

The Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen has called for talks between the government and the separatists to end the fierce fighting in the southern city of Aden.

Four people have been killed in a second day of fighting between rival factions seeking control of the southern Yemeni port city. This takes the death toll up to 16 and the number of wounded to 141

The clashes between southern separatists allied to the United Arab Emirates and forces loyal to Saudi-based President Hadi risk crippling their once united campaign against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.

The clashes involved tanks and heavy artillery targeting a hill which overlooks Khor Maksar and Aden port.

The factional fighting in the south compounds the misery of Yemenis whose country has been torn apart by three years of conflict between Hadi's forces and the Houthis.
