Yemen Tipping Toward Civil War?

The NYT reports that opposing groups within Yemen's military fired on each other in Sana, with one or two  killed and six wounded.  Meanwhile, efforts to persuade President Saleh to step down evidently have been dealt a blow by the Egyptian military government's decision to detain and interrogate ousted Pres. Hosni Mubarak:
