"Battles between supporters of rebels in northern Yemen and an Islamic group have killed 27 people over the past week, medical officials said Wednesday. The two sides are fighting for control of the lawless and remote northeastern province of al-Jawf. Government forces were driven out of the area two months ago as part of the uprising against longtime President Ali Abdullah Saleh." (07/13/11)
