At least 14 injured in anti-government clashes in Yemen
Pro and anti-government protesters clashed in Yemen's capital Sana'a Thursday, leaving at least 14 people injured in the seventh consecutive day of demonstrations, according to the opposition, dpa reported.
Witnesses reported that the ruling General People's Congress party attacked an anti-government protest of around 1,500 people in Sana'a, where people were demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has been in power for 32 years.
Police fired consecutive rounds of warning shots in the air in an attempt to disperse the crowds, but did not move in to break-up the clashes.
A photo journalist working for the European Pressphoto Agency epa had his camera confiscated by pro-government supporters at the protest. The German Press Agency dpa is a shareholder in epa.
The clashes come one day after a 21-year-old protester died and at least 17 others were hurt in Yemen in the southern port city of Aden and in Sana'a.
