Four people were killed Monday in a second day of fighting between rival factions seeking control of the southern Yemeni port city of Aden, where the internationally recognized administration is based, witnesses and officials said.The witnesses said forces loyal to the Southern Transitional Council, which was formed last year to push for the revival of the former independent state of South Yemen, were apparently trying to wrest control of two bases in Aden from Prime Minister Ahmad bin Daghr's government.In downtown Aden, most people stayed off the streets as government forces guarded the main road to Al-Maasheeq Palace, where the government is based.
