Bomb Attacks in the First Public Commemoration of Ashura in Yemen

Anti-Shia groups killed at least three and injured many in a bomb attack in the Shia populated area of Sanna while Yemeni Shia were commemorating the day of Ashura in public for the first time in half a century. Shia are minority in Yemen and cannot practice their faith in public, however this year they decided to take the next step in defending their rights and commemorating Ashura in public.

Anti-Shia terrorist have always targeted Shia rituals in countries such as Pakistan and Iraq and now Yemen is a new target for them. S.R.W condemns this inhuman act and asks all groups to respect each other and spread peace instead of hatred.
