YEMENI troops today killed the deputy commander of Islamic militants holed up in a mountain redoubt near this northern town, the defence ministry
said, as three soldiers were killed and 13 wounded in continued clashes.
The ministry's website named the dead man as Zaid bin Ali Moslah al-Houthi, brother of the self-styled "Emir al-Mumineen", or Prince of Believers,
Hussein Badr Eddin al-Houthi, whose followers have been engaged in bloody clashes with the army since June 18.
