Fierce clashes raged Monday between rebels and loyalists in southern Yemen, leaving more than 100 dead in 24 hours, as the Red Cross faced delays to urgently needed aid deliveries.Most of the 114 deaths in the past 24 hours occurred in fighting between rebels and loyalists of President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi in the main southern city of Aden.Seventeen civilians were among 53 people killed in Aden where fighting continued as rebels tried to seize a port in the city, which sits on an extinct volcano jutting out into the sea.At least 19 Houthis and 15 pro-Hadi militiamen were killed overnight in the town of Daleh, north of Aden, officials said.Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia last month as rebels advanced on his southern stronghold, prompting the military campaign by the Saudi-led coalition, now in its 12th day.
