Yemen Police Fire Live Rounds At Protesters

From Russia Today
(On Saturday) Yemeni security forces fired live bullets, tear gas and water cannon on two pro-democracy demonstrations on Saturday, killing three people, one a 15-year-old student. Hundreds more were injured as the government clamped down on a growing protest movement, according to witnesses. The violence began with a pre-dawn raid on a central square in the capital, Sanaa, where thousands of pro-democracy protesters have been camped out for the past month to demand the end of President Ali Abdullah Salehs' reign.
