Taez: At least 92 people have been killed in Saudi-led coalition air strikes and fighting between supporters of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and his opponents in southern Yemen, sources said today.

In the key port city of Aden and in the adjacent Lahj province alone, 46 rebels died in ongoing clashes and 12 hours of intense air strikes that lasted until early Saturday, a military source close to them said.

A medic in Aden said that eight pro-Hadi militiamen were killed. 

Government officials earlier gave a toll of 38 killed in clashes across other southern towns.
