Parliament suspended sessions after rival members entered with guns
By Nasser Arrabyee,08/09/2012
The speaker of the Yemeni parliament suspended the sessions of Saturday after three rival members turned the room of the sessions into something like a military barrack by bringing their gunmen inside the room.
The three MPs are tribal leaders from different tribes and have family feuds.
Deputy speaker of Parlaiment, Hemyar Al Ahmar son of the most powerful tribal leader of Hashed tribe, told his bodyguards to come in with him to the sessions room, which is not allowed to anyone to do that.
The MP Sagheer bin Azeez, tribal leader from Bakeel, who accuses Al Ahmar family of killing his brother, told his bodyguards to do the same and to come in with him to sessions room. Each one had twelve gunmen at least.
The MP, Mohammed Bin Naji Al Shayef, the top tribal leader of Bakeel, the second most influential tribe in Yemen, and the historic rival of Hashed, told his bodyguards to enter to the sessions room as well.
Usually, the bodyguards of the MPs, each one of the 301 has at least five gunmen, leave the bodyguards outside the main gate of the Parliament.
