Yemenis Sentenced to Death

A Yemeni court in the capital Sanaa has sentenced six men to death for murdering nine Spanish and Belgian tourists over the past two years.

The men were found guilty of attacks including one that killed seven Spanish tourists at the Queen of Sheba temple in Marib in 2007 and two Belgian tourists in the Hadramaut region in 2008.

Ten other defendants were sentenced to jail terms ranging from eight to 15 years.

The defendants shouted religious chants of defiance and prayed as each sentence was announced.
