Yemen called on the World Health Organization to send experts to it to investigate the claims by the physicians outside Sana’a University where tens of thousands have been conducting a sit-in that the security forces had fired nerve or prohibited gas at the protesters.
The request was submitted to the representative of the WHO in Sana’a Ghulam Rabani who should deliver that to the WHO regional director.
Yemen said the organization should send experts in forensics and poisons and smoke grenades which the government says were fired at the protesters.
The request came after hospitals and medical sources within the sit-inners said the security forces had fired nerve gas at the protesters leaving them suffer from cramp and brain hemorrhage.
Hundreds were injured when the security forces fired nerve gas at the protesters and others killed when live bullets were fired as the government is intensifying the crackdown on the spreading unrest demanding the departure of President Saleh.
