GUANGZHOU, March 20 (Xinhua) – Police in south China's Guangdong Province have detained four suspects and launched a pursuit for three others who were allegedly involved in attacking a group of unpaid migrant workers, killing one of them, earlier this month.

The contractor had employed the migrant workers since September 2013.
The man who was killed has been identified as Zhao Zhiming, who was among the 21 migrant workers attacked by dozens of assailants, who wielded knives and iron bars, on a street about 10 minutes' walk from the construction project office Gabriel Mercado Argentina Jersey , on March 6.
Police investigation has found that the workers were dismissed by the employer without payment after the Spring Festival holiday in February. They were refused payment again at the construction site office on March 6, and a short while later they were attacked by assailants who drove three vehicles to chase them down the road.
Zhao Xinbiao, uncle of the dead man, said the contractor owed his nephew 8,000 yuan (1 Franco Armani Argentina Jersey ,287 U.S. dollars) in salary. The group of migrant workers together claimed 140,000 yuan in unpaid salary.
Zhao said the workers had nothing personal against Li Yukun, the man alleged to have led the attack against the unarmed workers.

ADEN, Yemen, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) – Eight fighters loyal to Yemen's internationally-backed government were killed and several others injured in clashes with Shiite Houthi rebels near the Red Sea coast city of Mocha on Wednesday, a military official told Xinhua.
"The clashes broke out after a group of Shiite Houthi rebels attempted to sneak into military sites held by Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters in Muzaa area near the Red Sea coast city of Mocha," the local military official said on condition of anonymity.
The pro-government forces in Mocha city retaliated by launching a large-scale armed attack with tanks and artillery against the Houthi-held areas near Mocha Diego Maradona Argentina Jersey , the source said.
Medical sources confirmed to Xinhua that about eight fighters allied with the legitimate government were killed in the fighting with the Houthi rebels and several others injured.

The coalition also imposed air and sea blockade to prevent weapons from reaching Houthis, who had invaded the capital Sanaa militarily and seized most of the northern Yemeni provinces.
