SANAA, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Yemeni Houthi rebels retrieved the bodies of 62 their fighters from a frontline in Yemen's central province of Marib and moved them to mortuaries in the capital Sanaa on Saturday, medics at a Houthi-controlled military hospital told Xinhua.

"They were killed in the past two days in fighting with the government troops near al-Joubah district," the medics said.

The Houthis are trying to advance into al-Joubah, about 50km southwest of the government-controlled Marib central city.

Fighting in the western districts of the province is still ongoing, according to government military sources.

The Iran-backed Houthi militia launched in February a major offensive on Marib in an attempt to seize control of the oil-rich province, the last northern stronghold of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government. Enditem
