Yemeni security forces July 23 opened fire on thousands of protesters in Zinjibar, provincial capital of Abyan in the country’s restive south, killing 12 and wounding scores of others. “Government forces have committed a massacre against unarmed civilians, firing live bullets and killing 10 people,” said Ali Dehmes, an opposition leader in the south. Two more protesters apparently died in the hospital. (AP, July 23)
