Yemen Police Injure Over 400 Protesters

Yemeni police's live fire injured over 400 anti-government protesters who tried marching toward the presidential palace in the Red Sea city of Hudaidah.

Thousands of demonstrators had planned a 2 a.m. march to protest the Sunday's crackdown on protesters in Taiz, south of capital Sana'a, that killed two people and injured over a hundred others. Police fired live rounds and tear gas against the crowd that wounded at least 409 people.

The protesters are demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Salah who has often signaled that he has no intention of resigning soon.
