Shiite Muslim rebels attacked the home of Yemen's intelligence chief in Sanaa Saturday, residents and security sources said, showing the fragility of a power-sharing accord that has failed to halt fighting in the capital.Houthi rebels seized control of much of Sanaa last week, hours before the accord was signed with other political parties providing for the creation of a new government. However there have been several clashes between Houthi rebels and security forces in Sanaa since the accord was signed.One soldier and two insurgents were killed in the fighting, while 15 people -- six soldiers and nine Houthis -- were wounded, they said.
