14 people wounded during Yemen election day
At least 14 people in Yemen have been wounded in election day violence on Sunday, as voters chose their third parliament since the county's unification in 1990.
Witnesses said the shootouts were mostly between backers of the ruling General People's Congress (GPC) and those of the Islamic opposition Islah Party. One soldier was seriously wounded when troops tried to stop a clash.
Final results are expected by Wednesday. (Albawaba.com)
