On Jan 16, 2011 At least ten people were injured this morning in Radfan in the southern Yemeni province of Lahej when Yemeni army forces fired live ammunitions from various weapons on a peaceful protest rally organized to denounce the blockade imposed by the army on the area of Radfan since mid-December last year, as well as the indiscriminate shelling that caused the damage of several houses in the villages of Radfan.

Some of the wounded are:

1- Muhtam Saleh Khasim.

2- Arif Mohammed Al Sahibi.

3- Mohammed Muhssein Nasser.

4- Akeel Thabet Jaber.

5- Rhadwan Fhadel Ahmed.

6- Bassam Mohammed Mukbil.

7- Mohammed Ahmed Arif Al Nassri.

The wounded have been taken to the hospital while some of them were in serious conditions.

Media sources in the city assured the participation of the prominent leader of the Southern Movement, Hassan Ahmed Ba'oum, including Nasser Al Khabaji who declared resignation from the Yemeni Socialist Party as a respond to a call made by Ba'oum to avoid dualism of parties.

Militants had forced the Yemeni army to leave the city of al-Habilyn after violent clashes continued till the early morning.
