SANAA – One soldier and five Shiite Houthi militants were killed in Friday clashes in Yemen`s northern Al-Jawf province.
The violence accompanied a rally staged by Houthi demonstrators to demand that the government step down.
According to eyewitnesses, protesters provoked soldiers manning a nearby checkpoint, triggering clashes.
Yemeni authorities have yet to confirm the death toll.
