Govt troops and separatists clash in Aden, Yemen

Yemen govt bans protests in Aden ahead of separatist deadline

According to reports, 15 people were killed in clashes between forces loyal to the Saudi-backed Yemeni government and forces allied with the Southern Transitional Council, and dozens were wounded.

The clashes come as a deadline imposed by the separatists for the government to resign expired on Sunday. Hadi's administration nominally controls about four-fifths of Yemen's territory, but political and military leaders in Aden now want to revive the former independent state of South Yemen.

Meanwhile, the violence forced it to shut down its offices in Aden and the city of Taiz, according to the worldwide aid organization OXFAM.

"The Hadi government was nervous about any demonstration by the people, so they tried to stop it by force thinking that if there were a battle, the coalition would intervene and save them", the source said. At least ten people are believed to have died and many more have been injured.

Saudi and Emirati troops present in Aden did not intervene when the clashes first broke out, security sources said.

The fighting erupted after separatist protestors were prevented from entering the city for a protest to demand the government's ouster from Aden, established as its interim base after the Iran-backed Houthis seized control of the capital Sanaa in 2014. "It calls on all Yemeni political and social components to be calm and to restrain themselves, adhering to the language of calm dialogue".

Sunday's rally was called by the South Transition Council, an autonomous body aimed at overseeing self-governance among southern provinces.

The statement added "The Coalition for the Support of Legitimacy in Yemen is following up the events and developments in the Yemeni temporary capital (Aden) and the media debate in this regard about some popular demands to rectify some imbalances in the government sector".

In March 2015, the rebels advanced on Aden, where Hadi took refuge after escaping house arrest in the capital.

Yemen has been torn apart by three years of conflict between the Saudi-backed government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the Houthi, and the factional fighting in the south compounds the misery.

Years of United Nations -backed peace efforts have failed to resolve the conflict in Yemen, which has killed more than 9,200 people and devastated a country that was already among the poorest in the region.
