[Yemen Post] Deputy security director of the interior minister's office and four guards were killed when coppers attacked the interior ministry's building in the Yemen capital Sanaa on Tuesday, the ministry reported, adding others were maimed.
Under immediate orders from President Abdurabu Mansour Hadi
...the second and possibly the last president of Yemen, successor to former President-for-Life Ali Abdullah Saleh...
, a panel led by deputy interior minister has been formed to investigate the assault which the government said was aimed at pulling Yemen into chaos and conflicts.
The members of the rescue police attacked the ministry with various weapons and looted its offices under the pretext of demanding rights, it said. The rescue police has a camp adjacent to the ministry and are part of its guards.
The council of ministers and the high security committee held meetings and described the assault as an unprecedented and unjustified move that affects the country's stability and security.
The government urged the military committee, formed under power-transfer deal, and other concerned bodies to address the attack and punish those responsible to prevent anyone from derailing the political reconciliation, according to the ministry.
It also called on the countries sponsoring the transition deal to take a clear stance toward any party trying to obstruct the deal through inciting and backing violence, it added.
Separately, outlaws attacked the central security camp in the port city of Aden but there were no losses, the defense ministry reported.
A group of outlaws fired four rockets at the camp and the forces faced them forcing them to flee, it added.
