Fresh violence leaves 45 dead in Yemen

The army said it had killed 30 Islamist militants, including a local al-Qaeda leader. A local official said 15 soldiers had been killed in the battles for control of the town seized by militants about 10 days ago.

The fighting was another symptom of instability in Yemen, whose leader left for Saudi Arabia at the weekend for surgery on wounds suffered in an attack on his palace.
