At 30 soldiers and a number of militants have been killed in fighting in southern Yemen, military officials have said.

The clashes took place in the southern province of Abyan, west of the provincial capital and militant-held town of Zinjibar.

One report said that a total of 14 al-Qaeda militants had been killed.

The fighting flared following twin suicide bombings targeting military posts in Zinjibar earlier on Sunday.
