Ridiculous/insane footage inside a civilian hospital treating wounded, the cameraman strolls inside a dodges the shells while wounded scream. This is in the city of Taiz, Rowdha Hospital.
The regime knows that the people inside the hospital are those being treated for wounds from previous shelling of civilians in the city of Taiz or from attacks on unarmed demonstrators. So they routinely shell hospitals. Also, it is common practise to kidnap wounded after attacking a demonstration, or hijack ambulances and kidnap doctors and wounded alike. Doctors are routinely imprisoned.
The Yemeni people are demanding the trial of president Ali Abdullah Saleh for crimes against humanity, and major corruption charges. They are vocally rejecting the moves of the western powers and Gulf States to give immunity to Saleh and those guilty of war crimes. The case of immunity is currently being discussed at the UN, a resolution was presented by the British government.
UPDATE: This specific incident is described in detail in a report by Human Rights Watch asking for asset freezes and travel bans to be applied against the president and others in government http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/11/25/yemen-spate-killings-defy-un-order
