Yemeni security forces opened fire Thursday on protesters in the south chanting anti-government slogans, killing 4 and wounding scores of others, medics and eyewitnesses say.


A doctor at al-Razi government hospital in the provincial capital of Zinjibar said that so far 4 deaths have been confirmed, while 12 members of the police were injured. The doctor spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the press. (AP)
