AP | Dec 25,2011 | 22:14
SANAA — Doctors say eight protesters have been killed by Yemeni security forces who opened fire at some 100.000 protesters converging into the capital from a four-day march.
Mohammed Al Qoutbi and Sadeq Al Shugaa, doctors at a field hospital with the protesters, also say 200 have been injured in the assault, including 61 wounded by gunfire. The dead include one woman.
The protesters were attacked as they entered Sanaa after marching for four days from Taiz, 270 kilometres to the south to pressure the government not to grant outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh immunity from prosecution.
