Yemen in state of emergency after protest massacre

Massacre after Friday prayer

SANAA – Gunmen on rooftops shot dead up to 42 protesters at an anti-government rally in Sanaa after Muslim prayers on Friday, enraging the opposition and prompting President Ali Abdullah Saleh to declare a state of emergency.

As always, protesters blame da Jooozzz: here’s a poster decorated with the Star of David, pictures from left to right, former Tunisian President Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, with their shoes, during a demonstration in Najaf, 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of Baghdad, Iraq, Friday, March 18, 2011. About 7,000 people rallied Friday in mostly Shiite cities across Iraq against what some say are “sectarian attacks” by security forces in Sunni-ruled Bahrain on Shiite-led protesters there.

Medical sources and witnesses told Reuters that Yemeni security forces and plainclothes snipers, who protesters said were government security men, had opened fire on the crowds. The Interior Ministry put the death toll at 25, but doctors said 42 people had died and at least 300 were injured. (J’Post)
