Yemen Presidential Palace Shelled During Fighting

SANAA, June 3 (Reuters) - The Yemeni presidential palace was hit by at least two shells on Friday as street fighting in the civil-war-threatened country widened to more parts of the capital.

Battles in Sanaa have killed at least 155 people over the last 10 days, marking an escalation in the uprising to end President Ali Abdullah Saleh's three-decade long rule of the impoverished state which started in January. About 370 people have been killed in total.
