At least 10 killed in anti-Saleh march in Yemen

SANAA, Sept 18, 2011

(Reuters) - At least 10 protesters were killed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Sunday, a Reuters witness said, when gunfire erupted at one of the biggest demonstrations against President Ali Abdullah Saleh in recent months.

Scores were wounded when police opened fire on the crowds and sprayed them with tear gas as hundreds of thousands spilled out of Change Square, where many youths have camped out demanding an end to Saleh's 33-year rule.

Dozens of men were slumped on the ground, overcome by tear gas. Men on motorbikes and ambulances whisked them away from the scene.
