By Nasser Arrabyee,20/07/2011
The top leader of the largest Islamist opposition party,Islah, survived an assassination attempt, said the opposition coalition in Yemen late Wednesday.
Gunmen opened fire on the car of Mohammed Al Yadomi, the chairman of the opposition Islamist party, Islah while driving in the area of Mathbah, north of the capital Sanaa.
The Islah-led opposition coalition which includes Islamists,Socialist and Nasserites,accused the sons and nephews of the President Saled of being behind the assassination attempt.
"Targeting the chairman of Islah is an attempt to escalate and pushing the country into a civil war," said the opposition coalition in a statement.
