Grizzly bear kilk

Man dead after
attack in remote
area of Montana
(AP) - A grizzly bear wounded
by a hunter later attacked and
killed the hunter's partner Friday
after the two men tracked the
animal in a remote area along the
Idaho-Montana boarder, author-
ities said.
Steve Stevenson, 39, and Ty
Bell, 21, members of a hunting
party from Winnemucca, Nev.,
were going after black bears
when the attacked occurred
about 10 a.m. PDT in a mountain-
ous, heavily forested region in

Lincoln County, Mont., near the
Canadian border.
Bell shot and wounded a young
male grizzly, believing it to be a
black bear, undersheriff Brent
Faulkner said.
"They tracked the bear into an
area of heavy cover where Mr.
Stevenson was attacked by the
wounded grizzly bear," Faulkner
said in a news release late Friday.
"Mr. Bell was able to shoot the
bear multiple times, eventually
killing it," he said.
Bell used his cell phone to call
for help but Stevenson died from
his injuries, Faulkner said.
The area is extremely remote,
with no roads and poor com-
munications, said Ron Aasheim
of the Montana Department

of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
Authorities reached the scene in
"This is big-time back coun-
try," he said. "There are no roads
even close to this thing."
Authorities said the two were
part of a four-person hunting
party going after black bears
in the area when the attack
occurred. Faulkner said the party
had split up earlier into two-
member teams.
The incident is under investi-
gation. It is illegal to kill a grizzly
bear, which is listed as threat-
ened in the Lower 48 states.
There was no immediate word if
Bell would face any charges.
This is at least the third man
killed by a grizzly since July.

Attack on tens of
thousands labeled
deadliest in months
SANAA, Yemen (AP) - Yeme-
ni government forces opened
fire with anti-aircraft guns and
automatic weapons on tens of
thousands of anti-government
protesters in the capital demand-
ing ouster of their longtime ruler,
killing at least 26 and wounding
dozens, medical officials and wit-
nesses said.
After nightfall, Sanaa sank
into complete darkness after a
sudden power outage, as protest-
ers took control of a vital bridge,
halting traffic and setting up
tents. Thousands of other pro-
testers attacked government
buildings and set fires to build-
ings they said were used by snip-
ers and pro-government thugs.
The attack was the deadli-
est in months against protesters
and comes as tensions have been
escalating in the long, drawn-out
stalemate between the regime
and the opposition. The presi-
dent, Ali Abdullah Saleh, left for
Saudi Arabia for treatment after
being severely wounded in a June
3 attack on his palace, raising
hopes for his swift removal - but
instead, he has dug in, refusing to
step down.
The protest movement has

stepped up demonstrations the
past week, angered after Saleh
deputized Vice President Abed
Rabbo Mansour Hadi to negoti-
ate a power-transfer deal. Many
believe the move is just the latest
of many delayingtactics.
At the same time, greater num-
bers of the powerful Republican
Guards force, led by Saleh's son
and heir apparent Ahmed and
armed regime supporters have
also been turning out in the streets
in recent days, raising fears of a
new bloody confrontation.
More than 100,000 protest-
ers massed yesterday around
the state radio building and gov-
ernment offices, witnesses said.
When the crowd began to march
toward the nearby Presidential
Palace, security forces opened
fire and shot tear gas canisters,
they said. Snipers fired down at
the crowd from nearby rooftops,
and plainclothes Saleh support-
ers armed with automatic rifles,
swords and batons attacked the
protesters. Protesters tfak con-
trol of a main bridge, closed off
the entrances and set fire to tents
in a camp used by pro-govern-
ment forces.
"This peaceful protest was
confronted by heavy weapons
and anti-aircraft guns," said
Mohammed al-Sabri, ant opposi-
tion spokesman. He vowed that
the intensifying protests "will
not stop and will not retreat."

At the neighborhood of al-

troops opened fire at an anti-gov-
ernment force, the 1st Armored
Division led by Maj. Gen. Ali
al-Ahmar, who defected to the
opposition along with his 50,000
troops several months ago.
Witnesses said al-Ahmar's
forces engaged in the fight-
ing yesterday for the first time,
but Abdel-Ghani al-Shemari,
spokesman for al-Ahmar divi-
sion denied that and said they are
"maintaining self-restraint."
Tarek Noaman, a doctor at
Sanaa field hospital, said that 26
protesters were shot dead and
more than 200 were wounded.
"Most of the injuries are at the
chest, shoulder, head and face,"
he said, and said 25 of injured pro-
testers were in critical condition.
