Four Killed during Funeral March in South Yemen

Posted by FREE ADEN on June 9, 2009

Southern Yemenis held a funeral march today to bury the bodies of the six killed by Yemeni security forces in demonstrations earlier in the month. Tens of thousands participated. The march went from Aden to Lahj. Four more people were killed when the marchers crossed the checkpoint al Anad Army bases. I have photos of one of the fatalities that resulted from a bullet to the head. Guess there aren’t enough rubber bullets to go around. The Yemeni government is blaming “outlaw elements”; the protesters say it was the security forces.

The former president of South Yemen Ali Salem Beidh called in and spoke to the crowds; he said independence is coming and the killers in Sana’a will face justice for their crimes. The eight newspapers are still closed for covering the news, several news websites were hacked or shut and previously arrested protest organizers were moved from Aden to Sana’a.
