YEMEN - July 8 - Army, Villagers Clash.

Security forces shell a village in southern Yemen, part of what residents say was a dispute over ownership of a plot of land. Residents say the fight began after people, guarding a small plot of land against confiscation, resisted authorities' attempts to arrest them. 8 houses were destroyed and crops were damaged. Later July 8, tribesmen appeal to Pres. Saleh to intervene and order a halt for "the arbitrary shelling and the crackdown campaign" against civilians. In a statement sent to Saleh, the tribesmen urge the president to bring to justice the army officers who gave orders for the bombardment.
