Gunmen hurl hand grenade at Yemen Information Minister's house

By Fatik al-Rodaini
SANA'A, May 13, 2012- Unknown gunmen hurled on Saturday evening a hand grenade at the house of Yemen's Information Minister in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, wounding one person when they opened fire as they fled the scene.
"Two men on a motorcycle hurled the grenade at house of Yemen's Information Minister, Ali al-Amrani, wounding one of the minister's neighbors," the minister's office reported.
Al-Amrani survived an apparent assassination attempt by gunmen last January.
Yesterday's attack underscored the fragile security situation in the country, where President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, urged on by the United States, is trying to crush militants linked to al-Qaeda in the south.
