Yemeni hospital officials say one person has died and at least 10 people have been injured in clashes with the military in a southern province. The officials said the man died Thursday in Habalein town in Lahuj province, 135 miles (220 kilometers) south of the capital, San'a. They said the man was participating in riots that have taken place across southern Yemen in recent days in conjunction with the anniversary of the country's 1994 civil war. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because they were not authorized to talk to the media. South and North Yemen merged in 1990 but southerners say they are marginalized. Government troops crushed a southern separatist uprising in 1994.
