Yemen: 12 killed in clash
Twelve people died when Yemeni tribesmen clashed on Thursday with security agents for a Ukrainian oil firm during a protest, the Yemeni ruling party's Web site said. According to almotamar.net, six guards and six tribesmen died in the clash, which has ended.
"Tribal and security forces efforts have succeeded in containing the armed clash," the Web site of the People's Congress Party said, adding that the fight occurred in the eastern province of Shabwa.
The Web site quoted provincial sources as saying that the Bel-Hareth tribe has been pressing to secure jobs for its members at the oil firm and to secure contracts without consideration to professional skills and requirements.
