Yemeni security forces have opened fire on anti-government protesters in the western port city of al-Hudaydah, injuring scores of demonstrators.
Witnesses and hospital officials report that at least 150 people were injured on Wednesday after security forces fired teargas and live rounds on anti-government protesters, demanding an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh's three-decade rule.
Dozens of protesters also suffered from breathing difficulties in the wake of the teargas attack.
Pro-regime loyalists, armed with knives and batons, also attacked the protesters.'
