Islam's holy book, the Quran, is placed on the body of Yemeni anti-government protestor, Abdou Saeed Mohammed, who was killed during recent clashes with security at a field hospital in Sanaa, Yemen, Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011. Rapidly escalating street battles between opponents of Yemen's regime and forces loyal to its embattled president spread to the home districts of senior government figures and other highly sensitive areas of the capital on Tuesday. A third day of fighting, including a mortar attack on unarmed protesters, killed nine people, medical officials said. Writing in Arabic reads: Martyr Abdou Saeed Mohammed, Taiz".(AP Photo/Hani Mohammed)
