The editor of Yemen's most popular daily newspaper said that police have opened fire on his office, wounding three workers as the government escalates a crackdown on the media it blames for stoking unrest in the country's south. Hesham Bashrahel said Wednesday that police surrounded his Al-Ayyam newspaper office and neighboring home. Last week, the government suspended eight publications for allegedly inciting southern residents to call for a separation from the north. Southerners accuse the government of discrimination.
