Ministry denies protester killed in capital, criticizes Aljazeera untrue report

[17/February/2011]



SANA'A, Feb 17 (Saba) – A source at the Interior Ministry criticized information aired by Aljazeera Satellite Channel that a protester had been killed in Yemen's capital Sana'a.

The channel said that an anti-government protester was killed when pro and anti-government demonstrators clashed.

The report was baseless because the security forces already took control of the situation as they continue to protect the people while expressing themselves with freedom, the source made clear.

The police disengaged the fighting protesters and there were no casualties, the source said.

Peaceful expression of the popular will is preserved in Yemen by the constitution providing the practice of freedom of expression is according to the enforced law, the source said, urging Aljazeera to be objective and report accurate information.
