Yemen security forces fired

| No Comments

Yemen security forces fired upon protesters - killing 26 - organizing against current president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the LA Times reported Sunday.

The AP report sheds a different light on the story adding that 10 soldiers were killed in addition and described the conflict as a "battle in a government campaign to retake territory from al-Qaida-linked fighters".

According to the initial report, protests began as peaceful, but members of the movement began throwing stones and Molotov cocktails towards heavily armored government buildings.

This incident is considered to be the bloodiest of a 9 month rebellion.
