At least 55 people killed in renewed clashes across Yemen

Two days of fierce clashes in areas across the provinces of Taiz, Bayda and Marib between Shiite rebels known as Houthis and government forces have claimed the lives of at least 55 people from both sides, Yemeni security and health officials said, according to AP. Around 70 more people were injured during the same period.

Clashes continue despite a UN-brokered ceasefire that entered into force on April 11 and led to peace talks conducted in Kuwait. The ongoing military conflict between the two factions, Houthi rebels and forces loyal to Yemen’s ousted President Hadi, has already resulted in the deaths of more than 6,000 people and displaced millions, according to the UN.
