"Yemeni government forces on Wednesday fired mortars at tens of thousands of mourners during funerals held for protesters killed in clashes, shattering a cease-fire negotiated a day earlier to end the Arab nation's latest bout of deadly violence. That attack, along with another on an opposition base, killed at least 16 people." (09/21/11)
