Saudi soldiers occupy a position on Mt. Doud, Wednesday Jan. 27, 2010, a high strategic position in the southern Saudi province of Jizan, near the border with Yemen, that was occupied by Houthi rebels from Yemen, and was retaken by the Saudi military a week ago. At least 133 Saudis soldiers died, mostly in the ground fighting to retake the strategic high ground on the frontier. It is not clear how many rebels were killed. Saudi joined the 5-year-old fight when Yemeni rebels crossed the border and killed two Saudi soldiers. The northern rebels have been battling Yemen's government since 2004 complaining of neglect and discrimination. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar) (Hassan Ammar)
