Yemeni security officials say police have fired tear gas to quell a prison riot by inmates held on terrorism charges in the capital, leaving at least three in critical condition.
The officials said dozens of inmates linked to al-Qaeda refused to return to their cells early Tuesday, chanting and scuffling with the prison guards. Police fired their weapons into the air and lobbed gas in response. The officials said at least nine inmates were wounded, including three critically. (AP)
