Yemen 'Massacring' Peaceful Protesters

On Thursday, the Joint Forum opposition coalition said the country was witnessing "a savage massacre committed by the authorities and the militia of the ruling family against peaceful demonstrators," AFP reported.

In a popular revolution, hundreds of thousands of people have turned out for regular demonstrations in Yemen's major cities since late January, calling for corruption and unemployment to be tackled and demanding that the president step down.

At least 300 protesters have reportedly been killed and many more injured during clashes with riot police and armed forces loyal to the Yemeni president since the start of the anti-government protests.'
