Hundreds of protesters injured in Yemen, Al Jazeera TV's Sana'a office sealed

Sunday April 10, 2011 07:57:20 AM, IANS

Sana'a: Hundreds of protesters were wounded in police action in Yemen's capital while demanding an immediate end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh rule, Xinhua reported Sunday.

They were wounded when police used live rounds and tear gas to quell them from advancing towards presidential palace in Sana'a Saturday night, said doctors and witnesses.

Over 120 people have been killed and about 5,000 injured since the protests inspired by uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt broke out in Yemen early February.
President Saleh, who has ruled since 1978, announced a state of emergency in Yemen March 18.

Al Jazeera office sealed
Security authorities of Yemen closed the office of Doha-based Al Jazeera satellite TV Channel in Sana'a and revoked its permit for supporting sabotage in the country, Xinhua cited the state-run Saba news agency in a report.

"In view of that some media have repeatedly, blatantly meddled into domestic affairs of Yemen, the security authorities decided to close the office of Doha-based Al Jazeera satellite TV Channel in Sana'a with sealing wax and revoked its permit," Saba quoted an information ministry official as saying Saturday.

"This final action came after Al Jazeera television persisted in conducting a subversive scheme and supporting sabotage that aimed at inciting sedition, hatred and fighting against the government in number of Yemeni provinces," the official stated.

"In addition to that, Al Jazeera had also violated the Yemeni laws, and it lacked credibility, professionalism and impartiality in its coverage of anti-government protests in Yemen," he added.

The step came few hours after Yemen recalled its ambassador to Qatar for consultation, as a response to the remarks of Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabr al-Thani that the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) "hopes to reach a deal with the Yemeni president to step down".
