19 protesters killed, 122 wounded in Aden Yemen yesterday

Details here. Yemeni security forces took the corpses from the hospitals in Aden to the morgue at a military hospital and are refusing to identify the arrested and killed, leaving hundreds of parents wondering if their sons are alive, wounded, in jail or killed. Human Rights Watch reported earlier that the wounded protesters were being arrested and taken from hospitals.
