Yemen: 37 killed in Sanaa clashes

Not much yo say about Yemen, it is a cesspool.
I don't know who is right, or if anyone is right.
I just hope when it is over, Al Qaida does not have a state.

At least 37 people have been killed in overnight fighting in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, doctors and officials say.

Violence escalated after a ceasefire broke down between security forces and fighters loyal to Sheikh Sadiq al-Ahmar, head of a tribal confederation.

Analysts say the conflict threatens to drag Yemen into civil war.

Yemen is facing increasing unrest in several areas after President Ali Abdullah Saleh refused to step down.

Witnesses reported heavy fighting in the capital overnight as both sides blamed each other for breaking the ceasefire.

On Wednesday morning, witnesses also reported loud explosions coming from the north of Sanaa, but the reason was not clear.

The defence ministry accused tribesmen of seizing the headquarters of the ruling General People's Congress and other offices in Sanaa.
