At least 10 protesters were killed and tens of others injured late Sunday when security forces opened fired on angry demonstrators demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The demonstration came after a call from the opposition leaders for what they called “revolutionary end” for their 8-month long protests against President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
This bloody demonstration took place while talks are going on between the opposition and the ruling party after Saleh authorized his deputy to do that talks for reaching an agreement on electing new president in free and fair elections.
The government accused the opposition of distributing guns to some of people loyal to them to help the defected the army.
The regulation committee of the demonstration distributed masks, onions and other liquids against tear gases about two hours before the demonstration which started 330 pm and ended about 5 pm local time.
The firing started when the angry protesters wanted to go beyond the limits between the loyal forces and defected forces.
The firing started exactly nearby the electricity corporation in Al Qa’a when the protesters started to set fire to the gas station outside the corporation.
Al Qa’a area, in the middle of the town, is close to the pro-demonstrators and close to one of the Presidential Palace, the Republican Palace.
The opposition banned women from this demonstration as they were expecting violence.
