Yemeni security forces shot dead a prominent leader in the southern separatist Herak Movement in Aden Monday, residents said, ratcheting up tensions in the city where residents have been observing a weekly protest to push for independence.Hadi's government has vowed to correct wrongs against southern Yemenis and compensate thousands of civil servants or former army officers and soldiers fired from their posts after the 1994 war, or restore many to their posts.Apart from southern separatists, Hadi's government faces an Al-Qaeda threat in the south and eastern part of the country and a major challenge from Shiite Muslim Houthi militias who seized control of Sanaa in September in what they said was a drive against corruption but are refusing to quit.
