The war in Yemen pits Shiite rebels known as Houthis, who are supported by troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, against Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi's forces, who are backed by a Saudi-led coalition of mostly Arab countries.Yemeni security and health officials said Sunday that at least 55 people from both sides were killed in two days of fierce fighting.The conflict has killed some 9,000 people since March 2015 -- a third of them civilians, according to the United Nations.In a televised speech on Saturday, Saleh said he would not recognize Hadi's government and that he had presented an initiative to solve Yemen's crisis at the peace talks.
