At least five anti-government demonstrators were injured, one of them seriously, when armed men loyal to government fired to disperse them at gate of the university of Sana’a on Saturday, February 19th, 2011.

Eyewitnesses said, about 200 protesting students, who were demanding the ouster of President Saleh, tried to stage a demonstration at the gate of the university, but the pro-government demonstrators came and clashed with them and drove them out।

The clashes were with hands, sticks, batons, and the armed men were firing to disperse the demonstrators and I saw at least five of injured , said one of the students who were not siding, but were only watching।

The capital Sana’a and many other cities mainly Taiz and Aden, have been witnessing increasing violent demonstrations calling for toppling the regime।

As violence started to increase in the demonstrations which spread across the country, the US embassy in Sana’a called the Yemeni government to fulfill its responsibility to protect the life and property of all Yemenis and to safeguard their basic human and civil rights.
