Yemen 'bombing' threatens reform accord
Wednesday 19 January 1994
SANAA (Reuter) - The dominant political party in Yemen said yesterday a warplane from the south had bombed military camps in the north, just as leading politicians agreed reforms to end a crisis threatening national unity.
Travellers in Oman said the majority party in former South Yemen, embroiled in a feud with President Ali Abdullah Saleh, was sending troops and tanks to Shabwa oilfield, in the south, that might be taken over by forces loyal to Mr Saleh.
A southern officer denied the bombing charge, levelled the same day as rival parties signed an accord to try and resolve a six-month dispute that has threatened to split the 1990 union between the former North Yemen and South Yemen.
