Security forces in Yemen continue to open fire on protesters opposed to the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Authorities blocked a huge march in the city of Taiz, south of the capital Sanaa, where at least 10 people have been wounded.

Fatalities are also reported in the town of Ibb and Al-Baida and the protests show no sign of waning.

The fresh violence comes after the weekend when it was announced Saleh would step down in 30 days to end the chaos related to his decades in power.

It was reported he had agreed in principle to a Gulf Arab brokered deal to secure immunity from prosecution for him and his family, still the unrest and bloodshed continue.

Those on the streets want Saleh to have his day in court following a crackdown that has left more than 120 protesters dead since demonstrations began.
