    THREE WOUNDED YEMENI TRIBESMEN OF THE ROYALISTS FORCES WHO SURVIVED THE REVOLUTIONARY FIGHTING HAVE MANAGED TO CROSS INTO ADEN FOR HOSPITAL TREATMENT. YESTERDAY (MONDAY) TWO OF THEM, WHO WERE SUFFICIENTLY WELL, WERE ALLOWED BY THE ADEN GOVERNMENT TO GIVE INTERVIEWS TO NEWSMEN.

    THERE WERE FURTHER REPORTS LATE TODAY (TUESDAY) OF RENEWED BATTLE WITH THE ROYALIST FORCES FIGHTING BACK AFTER THE REVOLUTION WHICH DEPOSED THE IMAM.

    IN JORDAN, AMMAN RADIO HAS SAID THAT TROOPS UNDER HIS UNCLE, PRINCE HASSAN, HAVE TAKEN THE FORTRESS OF SA'DA IN THEIR MARCH ON SA'NAA, THE CAPITAL. SA'DA AIRPORT IS ALSO SAID TO HAVE SURRENDERED.

    THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE OLD REGIME, WHO IS IN AMMAN, HAS REPEATED THE CLAIM THAT THE IMAM IS STILL ALIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS. AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT OF YEMEN HAS ADMITTED WHAT IT CALLS "SKIRMISHES" ON THE NORTHERN BORDER BETWEEN THE ARMY AND TRIBESMEN LOYAL TO THE IMAM.

    AND ACCORDING TO CAIRO RADIO, SAUDI ARABIAN AND JORDANIAN TROOPS HAVE CROSSED INTO THE YEMEN, BUT SUFFERED HEAVY LOSSES. THE RADIO CALLED IT "NAKED AGGRESSION" AGAINST YEMEN.
