Another Protester Shot Dead in Yemen

Forces loyal to Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime have shot dead a pro-democracy protester and injured another in the southern city of Aden. The incident occurred on Sunday, the tenth day of consecutive protests, as police fired tear gas and bullets to disperse thousands of protesters demanding a change in leadership. Security in Aden was stepped up on Sunday with tanks and armored vehicles out on main streets. In the capital city of Sana'a, police fired shots at demonstrators. Hasan Baoum, the leader of Yemen's secessionist Southern Movement, was detained in an Aden hospital where he was receiving treatment, his son Fadi Hasan Baoum told Reuters. Thousands of people have also staged sit-ins in the cities of Ibb and Taiz, demanding the ouster of the US-backed president, who has ruled the country for 33 years. President Saleh, however, has said he will only step down after his term ends in 2013. Earlier, Yemen's parliamentary opposition said it is planning to join the street protests and have rejected a call by Saleh for dialog, slamming the government for using force against demonstrators. Over a dozen protesters have been killed by the government loyalists across Yemen over the past few days.
