At least 36 people have been killed and 185 wounded in two days of heavy fighting between separatists and government troops in Yemen's interim capital of Aden, the Red Cross said.Heavy fighting intensified at night after the two sides used tank and artillery on the second day of an attempted "coup" in the southern port city, military sources said.Residents were hunkered down at home as five separatist fighters were killed by snipers and four soldiers died in clashes, military sources said, with tanks and heavy artillery entering the fray.Aden has served as the headquarters of Saudi-backed President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi's government since it was forced out of the capital Sanaa by Huthi rebels three years ago.Fighters from both sides have been deployed in most areas of Aden, paralysed for a second day after 15 people were killed and dozens wounded on Sunday.Three civilians were among the 15 people killed on Sunday, hospital sources said, after separatist protesters were prevented from entering Aden for an anti-government rally.
