Yemeni soldier killed in clashes in southern area

A government official says a Yemeni soldier has been killed and three others wounded when armed protesters attacked their camp in the troubled south.
Yemen's south has been rocketed by demonstrations and riots over the past weeks. The protesters accuse the government of discrimination.
Yasser al-Yamani, deputy governor of the southern province of Lahaj, says Monday's death brings to seven the number of soldiers killed in the riots in recent weeks.
Officials say at least two civilians were killed on Saturday in riots in the southern town of Radfan.
North and South Yemen merged in 1990, but southerners complain that they are economic marginalized by the more powerful and populous north.
