Democracy Now: Yemeni Air Force Bombs Tribal Fighters

Yemen appears to be on the verge of civil war as government war planes have reportedly bombed fighters linked to a prominent Yemini tribal leader outside the capital of Sana’a. The air strikes mark a further escalation in recent fighting that has left at least 109 people dead over the past week. An alliance of tribal leaders have warned embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh to either step down or face civil war. Tribal leader Sadiq Al-Ahmar said there is no longer a chance for mediation with Saleh.
Sadiq Al-Ahmar: “The people are on our side and Allah is with us and before the people. They are with us because Ali Abdullah Saleh has been unjust for the last 30 years. And he is considered to the biggest liar of all liars in the world.”
