A Yemeni official says security forces have killed six militants and injured many others in fighting in the city of Zinjibar, the capital of the southern province of Abyan.
The official said that heavy fighting between government forces and al-Qaida-linked militants continued until the early hours of Monday. He said several members of the security forces were injured, but he did not say how many.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to reporters.
Security has collapsed across the Arab world's poorest country during the nine-month popular uprising seeking to oust President Ali Abdullah Saleh. This has allowed militants to seize entire towns in the country's rebellious south.
