The latest heavy fighting in a key southern Yemeni city has killed 58 civilians and wounded at least 50, medical officials said Friday, reporting the casualties from the previous day.According to the officials, rebel shelling in the city of Taiz first killed 23 civilians, which provoked airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition that has been targeting the Shiite rebels, also known as Houthis, since March. The subsequent airstrikes killed 35 people and demolished five houses in the eastern neighborhood of Sala, from where the rebels launched their attacks.
