Shocking Video - March 18, 2011
At least 41 people were killed and scores wounded after the Yemeni security forces opened fire on protesters at University square, in the capital Sanaa. Security forces opened fire in attempts to prevent protesters from marching out of the square where they were gathered, sources said. Medical sources said the death toll was likely to rise.
Pro-government "thugs" also opened fire on protesters from houses close to University square, witnesses told the AFP news agency. Reports said protesters rushed into the surrounding buildings and threw six alleged gunmen from the rooftops.
