Sources in the Southern Movement in al Shehr city, in Hadrmout province, said that a demonstration was suppressed by Yemeni security forces in the city, that marked a traditional festival.
Southern Movement supporters could penetrate into the crowds of the people who were watching the traditional festival, chanting slogans against the unification of Yemen, which caused security forces to suppress the crowds.
Reportedly, the security forces shot randomly, beating two demonstrators, then arresting them before other demonstrators could stop the arrest by a human-blockade that caused the soldiers to release the two young men.
Al Sher city is witnessing tight security measures after the incident, anticipating other protests.
