Popular Forces Union (Yemeni Opposition Party) Targeted

A security guard employed by the Yemeni government took over the PFU (opposition political party) building at gunpoint. Then he took over the building of its newspaper, al-Shoura. The Yemen govt then recognized him, their own gunman, as the new leader of the party.

Nifty way to silence the oppositon, huh?

Much more at Armies of Liberation, (including dueling Yemenis).
