Death threats made against Ibrahim Al-Ba’dani

Death threats were made against Ibrahim Al-Ba’dani, a journalist based in Ibb province, after he covered the death of a boy who was killed by a shot fired by a supporter of President Ali Abdallah Saleh during a rally organized to celebrate a speech by the president. The boy’s father, who is a Saleh supporter, blamed Ba’dani and opposition supporters for his death.
