Members of a Shi'ite rebel group attacked students enrolled in a fundamentalist Sunni Muslim religious school Monday, killing a Frenchman and a Briton and wounding several others, according to Yemeni provincial officials. But tribesmen said the students were fighting alongside government forces and tribal volunteers against "the Young Faithful Believers." The Shi'ite Muslim group is led by Abdel-Malek al-Hawthi.
