At least 84 wounded in new Yemen clashes
Yemeni security forces used live fire and tear gas yesterday on protesters demanding an end to the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, wounding at least 84, activists said.
Protesters in the southern city of Taiz said 80 people were hit while four were reported wounded in the capital Sanaa when police opened live fire and let off tear gas.
Some 150 people were wounded on Wednesday when security forces tried to break up a rally in the Red Sea city of Hudaida.
The Arabian Peninsula state, neighbor to oil giant Saudi Arabia, has been hit by weeks of protests trying to shake loose Saleh's 32-year grip on power.
