By Fatik Al-Rodaini

Sana'a, Mar 22, 2011- An armed group attacked Al-Jazeera Channel office in Sana'a, stealing some video equipment.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent in Sana'a, Ahmed Al-Shalfi said that more than 20 armed men raided the office early Tuesday morning.

Last week, Yemeni government forced two Al-Jazeera correspondents to leave. Ahmed Zidan and Abdu Haq Sadah took the plane from Sana'a to Cairo to Doha.

A month ago, Yemeni government prohibited them from covering the current unrest situation and protests in Yemen, but they continued on their task.

Authorities in Yemen accused Al-Jazeera Channel of inciting hatred, exaggerating in news, and distorting of the current situation in Yemen.

In January, President Ali Abdullah Saleh said that Al-Jazeera channel Serves Zionist and Terrorist Groups.
