Violent clashes broke out between fighters loyal to ousted Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and Houthi forces aligned with former President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the southern Yemeni city of Taiz on Wednesday. The fighting comes as Saudi-led coalition forces resumed their campaign against Houthi fighters on Sunday. Between 9,000 and 12,000 people have been killed since the beginning of the conflict in 2015, according to UN estimates.
