The move by Faisal Amin Abu al-Ras marked the first by a Yemeni envoy in protest at Friday's violence used by the government forces against the protesters in the capital, DPA reported.

Many of the victims were shot in the head and neck by snipers, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Twenty-Seven parliamentarians and 47 members of President Ali Abdullah Saleh's ruling General People Congress party have already stepped down, joining the protesters' camp.

The protests started in January, calling for the ouster of the regime since January.

Since the beginning of the popular uprising up to the Friday bloodshed, dozens of people were killed and hundreds more wounded during the armed attacks by the loyalists to the government.

The United Nations has condemned the aggression on the peaceful demonstrators.

Saleh has already been in office for 32 years with several opposition members arguing that his long-promised reforms have not taken place.

Despite the countrywide rallies, the head of state has said he would remain in power until the end of his term in 2013.
