U.S. aid workers killed in Yemen
« on: December 30, 2002, 04:27:03 AM »
SAN'A, Yemen (CNN) -- A suspected Islamic extremist shot dead three U.S. humanitarian workers and wounded a fourth at a missionary hospital in southern Yemen, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

A 35-year-old man, identified as Abid Abdulrazzaq Al-Kamil, was arrested by Yemeni security officials shortly after Monday's attack, according to Walid Al-Saqqaf, editor-in-chief of the Yemen Times.

Al-Saqqaf said the gunman reportedly sneaked into the hospital, posing as a father.

"One of the eyewitnesses there said that he came in the office as if he had a child beneath his jacket [but] it turned out to be ... a semi-automatic rifle that he used against them," he said.

Two of the victims were female, and one of the victims was an obstetrician, according to the newspaper. The injured worker was taken into surgery shortly after the attack, Al-Saqqaf reported.

The gunman opened fire at the U.S.-funded Baptist hospital in Jibla -- about 120 miles south of the capital San'a -- as the U.S. staff prepared to hand over control to local authorities, spokeswoman Julie Toma told CNN.

Al-Saqqaf reported that the gunman tracked down one of the victims in a separate room and shot him. "It seemed somewhat a pre-planned attack," he said.

"Perhaps the person who knew that they would be coming at that particular time ... wanted to do as much damage and harm as possible."

The U.S. Embassy in San'a issued a statement condemning the shooting, and urged Yemen's government to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.

"We call upon the Yemeni government to bring those responsible to justice," the statement said.

"We are advising American citizens in Yemen to enhance their personal security and are requesting additional protection for American citizens in Yemen."

Toma said hospital administrators believed the attack was an isolated event perhaps triggered by backlash against the transfer of power.

She said the full-service hospital has been providing medical services to Yemeni citizens for nearly 40 years.

Balian said about 30,000 Americans live in Yemen, most of them Yemeni-Americans.

Security in Yemen has been a U.S. priority since the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors. That was blamed on terrorist group al Qaeda, which is held responsible for the September 11 attacks in New York and Washington.

Yemen, the ancestral homeland of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, is a hotbed for extremist Islamic militant groups, finding refuge in the country's mountainous, tribal strongholds.

Yeah, I saw this, terrible stuff, but before NIK or someone comes up with their "80% of Muslims" statistics or something like that, the American press conference noted how the nearby citizens of Yemen lined the pavement around the hospital in protest against the killings and in tribute to those who died.

I let the articles speak for themselves....

I don't like killing. Thats my opinion.

Posting an article shows the Hate is still alive in the world. I post the articles to show who is killing for hate.

I don't see anything wrong with it.  It's a good way to present a non-biased view of it.  He posted the article, instead of just saying "Man!!!! TODAY!!! On the NEWS!!! They done killed a bunch of doctors in Yemen! They killed 'em! F'in Muslims, killed Christians, that's the only reason they did it!!!"

That dosen't make the killings acceptable or alright.


Fighting kills 5 in West Bank, Gaza

1.) In the first incident, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian gunman disguised as an Israeli soldier in Gaza after he opened fire on the troops near the Karni crossing,

2.) a Palestinian man, Hassan abu-Said, was shot dead by Israeli gunfire that came from the direction of an Israeli settlement, Palestinian sources said. Israeli military sources said soldiers had seen two armed Palestinians in an area where they were not allowed to be and opened fire, later discovering that one of them, abu-Said, had been hit.

3.) In Hebron, in the West Bank, an 18-year-old Palestinian man was found beaten to death Monday less than an hour after his arrest by Israeli soldiers, the man's family said.

4.) In the old city area of Nablus, Israeli border police said they shot and killed a Palestinian youth after he threw a Molotov cocktail at them.

5.) The Israeli army also reported an incident near Jenin, in the northern West Bank, in which a 37-year-old Palestinian teacher crashed his car into an army vehicle, seriously injuring one soldier. The teacher then came out of his car and approached the soldiers who said they saw an object in his hand that they believed was a pistol. The army said the soldiers shot and killed him but it turned out the man was unarmed. The Israeli army commander of the central area ordered an investigation into the death, the army said.
