Yemen: Shiite gunmen kill three
Yemeni Shi'ite rebels shot dead three pro-government tribesmen, the Interior Ministry stated on Wednesday, in violence that could strain the truce aimed at ending clashes.
According to Reuters, the Interior Ministry said the rebels had opened fire on members of the Ben Aziz tribe, killing three tribesmen and injuring three others including a passerby.
The Shi'ite rebels said they attacked the Ben Aziz tribesmen in response to an earlier assault on the same day. That attack, according to a local official, was in retaliation for a tribe member's killing last week that they blamed on the rebels.
