Flights halted at Yemen's Sanaa airport-passengers

SANAA, June 2 (Reuters) - Flights were suspended at Yemen’s Sanaa airport on Thursday due to fighting between tribesman and forces loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, passengers said.

The battles between the forces had neared the airport, stranding hundreds of passengers. The airport was briefly closed last week due to the deadly street fighting. (Reporting by Mohamed Sudam; Writing by Jon Herskovitz)
