12 people were killed on Thursday during clashes between security personnel representing an un-named Ukrainian oil firm and Yemeni tribesmen, reported Reuters. The incident occurred in the eastern province of Shabwa and it is believed six tribesmen from the Bel-Harath tribe and six security officers were killed. An oil pipeline was blown up by tribesmen last Monday. Sources claim the tribe has been seeking jobs and contracts for its members.
