SANAA (Reuters) - Rival Yemeni security forces clashed in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday when forces loyal to a defected army general set up a checkpoint and were attacked by pro-government forces, a source close to anti-government forces said.

"Ten were wounded in an attack on the forces of the first division by forces of the central security police," a source close to the forces of defected army General Ali Mohsen said, adding that the clashes lasted about an hour.
