Security forces fire on protesters in Yemen


In Yemen there have been more violent clashes as protesters took to the streets demanding that President Saleh leave power. In Sanaa, at least one person was killed and one injured when security forces opened fire with live rounds.

There have been on-going protests all over the country. Both Western and Gulf Arab allies have unsuccessfully tried to broker a solution to the crisis which is also to be discussed by the UN Security Council.

Protesters have been burning tyres, and roadblocks have been set up. It is estimated that around 117 people have died in the protests since they began in January.
