Massacre In Yemen, Police Open Fire On Thousands Of Protesters, Dozens Dead

Add this to the list of brutality in the Mideast. There has been a massacre in Yemen today. According to reports, more than 28 people have been killed. Police opened fire on protesters. Between Libya, Bahrain, and Japan it's possible this will go largely unnoticed. We'll update as details come in. Russia Today says there were "tens of thousands" of protesters in the capital. The NYT has more. Snipers fired down from rooftops. Violence supposedly "dwarfed" that of other protests.
