By Fatik Al-Rodaini

Sana'a- Mar 10, 2011- Abdul Kareem Rasea, Yemen's Health Minister denounced allegation of using forbidden tear gas against protesters at Sana'a University campus lately.

Rasea said in a press conference on Thursday that Yemen's security forces used the same tear gas in which anti-riot units used all over the world.

Two days ago doctors from the scene of violent anti-government protests in Yemen’s capital said that what was originally thought to be tear gas fired by government forces on demonstrators might instead have been a form of nerve gas, which is forbidden under international law.
