Security forces have opened fire on anti-government protesters trying to join a camp at the University of Sana’a, killing one and injuring 100. The police were accused of using tear gas and rubber bullets, and firing live rounds into the crowd. Mass demonstrations have also been taking place in other cities including Aden, Atiq and Taiz.
Four people have been killed in anti-government demonstrations in Manama. Without warning, police launched the crackdown at around 3.00 am (12am GMT) on Thursday, leaving up to 95 protesters injured. Earlier in the week a man was killed at the funeral procession of a person who died in the protests the day before.
Two deaths have been reported in anti-government demonstrations in Tehran. The deaths came as anti-government protesters clashed with police and pro-government supporters. It is not clear which camp the dead demonstrators belonged to, with both the anti and pro-government supporters claiming them as their own. Several demonstrators were also wounded in the clashes. The government has banned all opposition rallies, and detained major opposition leaders and hundreds of activists in order to deter the protests.
