Yemen: 2 dead and 27 injured in grenade attack
SANAA - Two protesters were killed and 27 others wounded Friday in a grenade attack against an anti-government rally in the Yemeni city of Taiz, 270 km southwest of Sanaa, said medical sources.
- The grenade was aimed at a gathering of thousands who camped for the seventh consecutive day, on a crossroads of Taiz renamed "Freedom Square", like that which was the epicenter of the revolt against the Egyptian regime to demand the ouster of President Ali Abdallah Saleh.
- "We saw an official car approach and throw the grenade before its occupant, fire their guns into the air," told AFP by telephone, a witness interviewed in Taiz.
