Clashes between Yemeni forces and Shiite Huthi rebels in the northern city of Amran claimed the lives of 13 civilians, who died when their houses collapsed, a medic said Wednesday.

The bodies of the 13, among them five children and two women, were taken to the city's public hospital, the medic said, adding that they died after "their houses collapsed in overnight clashes."
