Security forces kill nine people in Yemen
Azerbaijan , Baku, Sept. 15 / Trend A.Isgandarov /
The Yemeni security forces still continue fighting against protesters in the capital, AFP reported. The security forces shot dead nine people.
Government forces launched a crackdown on the protesters on Sunday, killing more than 50 people in two days.
Since February, millions of Yemenis have been demanding the ouster of Saleh, who has been in power for 32 years. Yemeni security forces use their weapons to disperse the anti-government actions. According to Western media, for two months the popular unrests in the country killed several hundreds people.
Despite months of protests, Saleh, who has been receiving treatment in neighbouring Saudi Arabia for the past three months for blast wounds he sustained in a bombing at the presidential palace, has so far refused to hand power to his deputy.
The UN plans also calls for the immediate launch of negotiations on the formation of a government of national reconciliation, which would rule the country for an interim period of three or six months during which preparations would be made for a presidential election.
