A UNDP-Qatari team of experts is currently conducting comprehensive analyses on the act of violence in a number of provinces in Yemen.
In a bulletin released recently by the team showed that violence rate has increased so far 10% during the past 12 months from August 2011 to July 2012 compared to the past period from June 2011 and before, in which Yemen has seen horrifying incidents due to the political crisis.
The bulletin has also stated that the experts have reviewed all aspects of violence during that 12-month period including armed clashes, ambushes, arrests, airstrikes and offenses, in five provinces in the northern, central and southern parts of the country.
The capital city of Sana’a in the north came as the first. Then came the southern province of Abyan as the second. Taiz, the central province, came as the third. The two other southern provinces, Aden and Lahj, came respectively as the fourth and the fifth.
