New Fighting in South Yemen

United Press International

Rebels and government supporters both claimed control of South Yemen today, but Westerners evacuated from the strategic pro-Soviet Arab state reported new fighting in the nation's capital.

There were conflicting reports on the whereabouts of President Ali Nasser Hasani, who various news reports Sunday said had fled to Ethiopia, North Yemen or the Soviet Union. But the Gulf News Agency today quoted reliable sources as saying Hasani had returned to the capital of Aden from Ethiopia and "is still in control" of most of South Yemen.
