Bombs Fall Near Aden

ADEN -- Northern Yemeni aircraft bombed targets close to Aden on Wednesday as their forces tried to mount a decisive push on the southern capital ahead of an expected UN Security Council ceasefire call. Sanaa brought its air force into play over the city for the first time since early in the civil war that broke out May 4. Aircraft raided targets a few kilometers from the south's only oil refinery west of the city, hitting a residential area for refinery employees, southern security officials said. They said two buildings were damaged.
