Yemeni forces and allied tribes captured Friday the capital of the northern Jawf province, the second rebel town to fall in 24 hours as a ceasefire appears to have collapsed, tribal sources said.About 1,000 soldiers were involved in the operation to take the town, a military official said, adding that "intensive fighting took place in Haradh".He said dozens of renegade troops allied with the Iran-backed Huthi Shiite rebels had been killed. Clashes have been frequent along the Saudi border, where rebel strikes have killed more than 80 people since March, when the coalition campaign against the rebels began.
