In the province of Hudaida, gunmen torched the local headquarters of the main opposition Islah party and attacked its staff, injuring five people, two of them seriously, the party said on its website. It blamed Saleh loyalists for the incident. In Sanaa, university officials postponed indefinitely the start of the second academic term, state media said. Sanaa University has been the scene of bloody confrontations for weeks between protesters holding a sit-in outside the campus, police and Saleh loyalists. The interior ministry sacked the commander of security forces in the restive southern port city of Aden, state media said, without giving a reason. In the central province of Maarib, tribesmen prevented technicians from repairing an oil pipeline that was damaged in an attack Monday, officials told Reuters.
