Live rounds fired at anti-Salah protesters in Yemen


Wounded protesters seek medical help after Yemeni forces fired live rounds at demonstrators calling for a end to the 32 year rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

As many as 22 people were injured and 200 succumbed to tear gas in the capital Sanaa as anti-government protesters marched out of their stronghold close to the city’s university.

Hundreds of thousands took part in the latest demonstration as opposition to Saleh continues to grow.

Many women took to the streets furious at Saleh’s comments that their actions were anti-Islamic.

An opposition delegation has been in Saudi Arabia to try to find a solution to the mounting chaos.

Saudi Arabia and the United States fear a continued standoff could spark violence between rival military units and benefit the active al-Qaeda cell at work in the poverty stricken country.
