Some Yemeni residents flee homes as clashes rage

Some Yemeni residents heeded calls to evacuate parts of their capital city Saturday in expectation of further clashes between the country's long-time president Ali Abdullah Saleh and tribal leaders, but most remained firmly entrenched in their homes, according to witnesses.

The order was carried out by members of the country's Republican Guard and law enforcement, who warned residents in city neighbourhoods of more confrontations after tensions flared Friday between Nehm tribesmen and soldiers of the Republican Guard.

The tribesmen said the soldiers attacked a village, but tribal fighters, battling back, managed to take over military compounds.

Meanwhile, armed tribesmen were seen massing at four locations around the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, witnesses said, as well as near the house of Sheikh Sadeq al-Ahmar, the leader of the powerful al-Hashid tribe whose forces oppose the government.

    @True Confessions: You don't understand. I have a job. It's upsetting good normal ordinary bloggers like you and turning them into monsters.

      Do I sound upset? You will get yours and I will get mine 🙂 The definition of a troll is someone that makes off topic comments or incendiary remarks, so you and your friends fit into that category more than any of us fighting back against your evil ta-rd army. 😉

  5. Cesar's estranged papa

    Cesar! Este es tu padre! Te arrojado del cielo por lo que un pequeño gusano que eres. Usted es incapaz de nada bueno y creo que se divierten mucho ahí abajo en la tierra. Tengo una eternidad de aburrimiento como su castigo. Espero que recuerde siempre que traté de ayudarle, pero estoy seguro de que sólo seguirá a mí maldición y me hacen ser el malo de la película. Diviértete en tu jaula poco oscuro, con todos sus deseos, pero no hay dolor o placer.

      Sure. Just turn yourself into a hot blonde virgin cheerleader and we can get hitched. You'll have to get all of that chocolate jesus juice pumped out of your tailpipe first though. When forrest bump was talking about life being a box of chocolates he was talking about your pink kayak that you use to have the NCAA final four in. Not my cup of tea, err coffee.
