At least 14 protesters were killed and hundreds of others were injured when Yemeni security forces attempted to storm a camping square of tens of thousands of anti- government protesters in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday evening, doctors told Xinhua.

Security forces, using heavy machine guns and tear gas, were still firing and besieging the protesters' square from all entrances near Sanaa University, in an apparent attempt to break into the square, said a Xinhua correspondent at the scene.
