Blast at Yemeni court

A Yemeni judge has been injured in an explosion at the courtroom where earlier this week a man was sentenced to death for killing three Americans, witnesses say. The early morning blast, which went off at a court in the southern town of Jibla, was believed to have been caused by a hand grenade. Police said they arrested a man immediately after the incident. Witnesses said they saw several people being taken away in ambulances, but it was not clear if anybody was killed. Suspected al-Qaeda militant Abed Abdulrazzak Kamel, 30, was sentenced to death on Saturday for killing three Americans who worked at a Christian-run hospital. He confessed to killing the three last December to get closer to God and to take revenge on Christians and Americans.

The judge who was injured on Wednesday was not the one who sentenced Kamel, the Associated Press news agency reported. Full Story
