SHOCKING: Father of bride kills 12 at Yemen wedding

A wedding in Yemen ended in tragedy when the “mentally disturbed” father of the bride hurled two grenades, killing eight women, four children and himself, an official and relative said Tuesday.

Eighteen others, including women and children, were wounded in the incident late Monday in the town of Yarim, in western Ibb province, the official said.

A relative said the father, Hazaa Sharman, was a “mentally disturbed retired army officer.” Yemen is awash with personal weapons and carrying firearms is entrenched in the traditions of the Arabian peninsula republic.
