Yemen: "Bloody harvest", political activity and U.S. optimism.
The day before provided most bloody scenes from the rebellion in Yemen while Yemenite president Abdulla Saleh is still unwilling to retreat. Security forces fired live rounds at protesters in Taiz and in the capital of Sanaa, thus killing and wounding scores of them and even targeting children. It is reported that, at the same time, different factions of the Yemenite army, pro-government and pro-rebels, were fighting against each other and artillery fire was heard throughout Sanaa. A cameraman working for an Arab news agency was severely wounded during the incidents and might be dead by now. After being hit, he left his camera running. His recording can be viewed in a video that will soon be added to this blogspot.
