At least 20 Saudi-led Arab coalition troops have been killed in friendly fire as troops loyal to the Yemeni government captured Zinjibar, the capital city of the southern Yemeni province of Abyan, Yemeni security officials and pro-government fighters said Sunday.

The troops were on their way to the city when an airstrike from their own forces killed them. This comes after three days of intense fighting against Shia rebels and their allies, the latest in a string of battlefield successes by the Saudi-backed troops.

The Saudi-led coalition began launching airstrikes in March against Shia Houthi rebels and their allies — troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh — who control the capital, Sanaa, and much of northern Yemen.

The statement carried by the official news agency WAM did not say how the soldiers were killed or whether they died in Yemen.
