"Heavy gunfire and explosions rocked the Yemeni capital on Thursday as clashes between government troops and rival tribesmen erupted anew Thursday, leaving at least three people dead. The fighting started early in the morning in Sanaa's Hassaba neighborhood, spilling over into nearby streets in the capital. Hassaba is a stronghold of Yemen's most powerful tribal confederation, the Hashid, led by Sheik Sadeq al-Ahmar who has sided with the opposition calling for the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh."
