Uncertainty over Yemen attack

Saleh blames al-Ahmar tribe for raid on presidential compound but some believe the president orchestrated the attack.

    The Yemeni presidential palace came under fire on Friday.

    Seven people died and Ali Abdullah Saleh, the president, was injured.

    The government has blamed the al-Ahmar tribe for the attack. But some residents in Sanaa suspect that the raid could actually be orchestrated by the president himself.
