Houthi militiamen and forces loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh attacked an oil refinery in Aden for the second time yesterday starting large fires and spreading panic among residents.

Local residents told the Anadolu Agency that mortar barrage hit the Aden Oil Refinery in the Buraiqah area yesterday evening which led to the outbreak of a massive fire, prompting some citizens to flee the city.

A second UN-brokered humanitarian ceasefire interred into force on midnight on Friday but clashes and shelling in several Yemeni cities continued.
