Yemen's President Injured From Attack

Embattled Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was injured Friday after his presidential palace was attacked by tribal fighters armed with rockets. It's a major escalation of the violence in Yemen. The peaceful protests calling for the president's ouster may now be giving way to an all-out battle for power between Yemeni tribes. Michele Norris talks with Hakim Almasmari the editor in chief for the Yemen Post about the attacks — and the latest on the unrest in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.
