ADEN: At least 27 people were killed in Yemen’s Taez in clashes between loyalists and rebels and Saudi-led coalition air raids in a day that claimed 52 lives, medics said Saturday. Residents said the city in southwest Yemen was rocked by explosions and gunfire overnight as the coalition-backed forces of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi battled pro-Iranian Huthi Shiite rebels. Nineteen rebels, four soldiers of a mechanized army unit loyal to the president and four other pro-Hadi fighters were killed, a medical source told AFP.
