At least five killed in latest Yemen violence


Further violence in the Yemeni capital Sanaa has left at least five anti-government protesters dead.

It broke a truce reached 24 hours earlier between state troops and defected soldiers and took the death toll to 75, in four days of bloodshed.

The latest clashes came as tens of thousands of people took part in a funeral procession for those killed in the previous violence.

Coffins draped in flags and photographs of victims were carried through the streets.

Those gathered chanted that they were going to bring President Saleh to justice, as they push for an end to his 33-year-rule.

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Abdbullatif al-Zayani, left Yemen empty handed on Wednesday after trying to get a transfer of power pact signed up to.

President Saleh is currently in neighbouring Saudi Arabia, recovering from an assassination attempt in June.
