5 Hurt as Forces Attack Wounded Revolutionaries before Yemen Cabinet

 
*
 Yemen Post Staff

Five people including MP Ahmed Saif Hashid were hurt after anti-riot forces attacked Yemeni wounded revolutionaries who have been protesting in front of the council of ministers for weeks.
The revolutionaries, who were wounded during the 2011 uprising, have been protesting the slowness of the government to respond to their demands including sending some of them for treatment abroad. They argued the government has not sent about ten, who were seriously injured, to Germany and Cuba according to a court decision last year.
MP Ahmed Saif Hashid joined the protest in support of the wounded revolutionaries.
The attack by the central security forces coincided with the weekly meeting of the cabinet.
The forces arrived at the protest site, surrounded the wounded protesters, beat them and fired teargas at them.
Some security soldiers were seen with batons and later blood was seen on the face of Hashid. He was injured in his head and later was admitted along with others to hospital.
The forces withdrew after the attack which has drawn wide criticism amid ongoing rage of the public, activists and revolutionaries who have accused the government of ignoring the demands of the wounded revolutionaries.
The government has already sent some revolutionaries for treatment abroad and has recently paid funds for the treatments of others.
Activists and revolutionaries, however, argued what the government has done in this context is not enough because there are about 11000 revolutionaries who were hurt during the uprising.
