SAN'A, Yemen — Yemeni security forces opened fire on rioters angry over cuts in subsidies on oil products Thursday, leaving at least 16 people dead

Its sad to see that 16 people are dead and more than 30 are wounded over this. I know its bad when your cost of gas is almost doubled but is it worth
it? The security guards did fire tear gas but the protestors responded by throwing stones.
