Fresh fighting flares in Yemen as dialogue hopes dim

Fierce fighting has been raging between Yemen's rival factions in the south of the country a day after Ali Abdullah Saleh, the former president, urged his allies to withdraw from the areas they have captured.

The factions are trying to gain more ground in Dar Saad, a district near the southern port city of Aden. Fresh fighting around the southern city of Aden has left at least 28 people dead.

Saleh, who still holds sway over army units allied with Houthi fighters who now control large expanses of the country, had welcomed this month's Security Council resolution as a way to "stop bloodshed" in Yemen.
