Official: Four ‘northerners’ killed in ongoing violence South Yemen

Four people were killed in South Yemen and clashes between government officials and locals have erupted in more than one place. Based on a security officer at the Ministry of Interior, a number of violent events occurred in a couple of areas in South Yemen as a part of the ongoing disobedience that took into effect today. The disobedience was called for by southerners to protest Government’s killing of a powerful tribal leader in December 2, 2013. People in South Yemen have already grievances against the central government and killing the tribal sheikh was the last straw. Haykal Bafana’s twitter account and blog provide a background and detailed analysis of the issue.
