A 45-year soldier died in Saber,Taiz, when he was stuffing the cannon of Ramadan with gunpowder at the breakfasting time on Ramadan 1st.
Saeed Hasan Abdullah, from al-Quai'a, left his nine children and their mother to be orphans and a widow.
It is known that the president of the republic directed to use new cannons instead of the old Turkish ones at the time of breakfasting and predawn meal, following the customs in all governorates.
But it seems that the new cannons need competent trained people to deal with them.
