Death toll of Yemen riots on the rise
Hundreds of Yemeni students protested on Sunday for the eighth straight day in Sanaa, while police shot dead a protester in the south. In the capital, students gathered outside the university's campus shouting slogans demanding the departure of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, AFP said. Some 100 Saleh supporters staged a counter-rally across the street, and police set up a cordon to separate the two camps.
On Sunday, police shot dead a protester in the southern regional capital of Aden, medics and witnesses said, raising the death toll in the restive city to 11 since February 13.
A protester was also wounded as police fired tear gas and bullets to disperse hundreds of people who took to the streets in the port city's Sheikh Osman quarter. At least 76 people, including seven troops, have been injured in Aden since the protests started.
