At least nine people were killed Monday during clashes between Shiite militants and troops near Yemen's presidential palace in the capital Sanaa, the deputy health minister said.
Civilians were among the 67 people wounded, some of them seriously, in the clashes that ended with a ceasefire later in the day, Nasser Baoum told AFP, adding the dead included fighters from both sides.
A medical source had given an earlier toll of at least two people killed and the health ministry had said 55 were wounded.
