By Fatik Al-Rodaini

Sana'a, Apr 25, 2011- At least two antigovernment protesters were killed and several others were wounded in two separate clashes with security forces in Ibb and Al-Baitha provinces.

One was shot dead in Ibb province and 30 others wounded seven of them by live bullets and the others by stones, in clashes between anti-Saleh protesters demanding the fall of embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime and security forces in plainclothes.

The second protester was killed in the southern province of Al-Baitha where tens of thousands of anti-Saleh protesters marched on Monday demanding an end to Saleh's regime.

Medical and eyewitnesses in the southern province of Taiz said that 250 anti-government protesters were treated for inhaling tear gas and 50 were wounded by live bullets and stones when security forces tried to disperse protesters taking to the streets demanding immediate ouster for President Saleh.

President Saleh's regime has been facing nationwide protests in 15 of Yemen's province since the beginning of February.

More than 130 demonstrators have been killed in clashes with the security forces since late January.
