Two men and two women on a group tour died in Sunday's explosion at Shibam, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Three other Koreans were injured but could walk unaided, a senior ministry official told reporters.

either their capabilites have been serverely deminished or it is a strategic move to eliminate the pawns before heading toward the larger pieces.
