A Yemeni opposition editor who was accused of backing the country's Shiite rebels and recently spent a month in jail, was found badly beaten and bruised on Monday, just hours after a Yemeni journalists union reported him kidnapped. Abdul Karim al-Khawinay, editor of the Al-Shura weekly, was found by villagers in the mountainous Al-Khawlan area some 30 kilometers (19 miles) southeast the capital, and taken to a hospital in San'a. His T-shirt was bloodied and his arm broken. Earlier, the Yemeni Journalists Syndicate said, citing eyewitnesses, said al-Khawinay was abducted on the street Monday by about 7 people who jumped out of a land cruiser with covered car plates and took him away.
