Military police sit by the coffins of police officers killed during recent clashes with armed followers of the tribal leader Sadiq al-Ahmar during their funeral in Sanaa October 21, 2011.

The violence has been escalating in Yemen, and today they held funeral ceremonies for what appears to be at least 20 police officers. At least twelve protesters were killed on Tuesday, and eighteen died on Monday.

Today the U.N. votes on a resolution condemning the crackdown on the protesters. The New York Times considers how Moammar Gadhafi's death will impact Yemen and other Arab nations currently experiencing unrest.
