At Least 13 Killed In Renewed Yemen Violence

Medical officials and activists say at least 13 people were killed and more than 40 others wounded in renewed clashes in Yemen's capital and its second city.

Hospital officials say at least 10 people, mostly civilians, were killed in armed clashes in the flashpoint city of Taez between government forces and tribesmen calling for President Ali Abdullah Saleh's resignation.

In the capital, Sanaa, three people were killed in clashes late on November 1 between government troops and anti-Saleh tribesmen.

The violence comes after a brief pause in bloodshed where government troops have been battling a nine-month uprising by pro-democracy activists, dissident soldiers, and tribal gunmen against Saleh's 33-year rule.
