Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

YE­MEN - In the past 24 hours fight­ing claimed the lives of 27 rebels and 12 pro-gov­ern­ment fighters on the out­skirts of Hodeida city. Ye­meni pro-gov­ern­ment forces ad­vanced closer to rebel-held Hodeida overnight, a mil­i­tary source said on Wed­nes­day, rais­ing fears over hu­man­i­tar­ian aid de­liv­er­ies through the life­line port city. Con­cern was also grow­ing for civil­ians in Hodeida, as the fight­ing drew near and af­ter re­ports that snipers had po­si­tioned them­selves on a hos­pi­tal rooftop.
