Yemeni Shiite rebels dug in their heels Wednesday after rejecting the newly named premier, stirring fears of further violence as Al-Qaeda and tribes accused security forces of favoring the insurgents.With confusion reigning in rebel-controlled Sanaa, suspected militants with Al-Qaeda, which has vowed to battle the rebels, killed 10 policemen in central Yemen. President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi late Tuesday named his Chief of staff Ahmad Awad bin Mubarak as the new prime minister, after a U.N.-brokered peace deal agreed on Sept. 21, the day the Houthi rebels overran the capital unopposed.The rebel leader, Abdel-Malik al-Houthi, has yet to comment on the nomination of the premier.In a statement, the Interior Ministry said 14 troops and 15 assailants died in the attacks and ensuing clashes in central Baida province.
