SANAA -  Three protesters were killed and 30 wounded in Yemen Saturday as thousands of protesters approach the Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's compound in the capital Sanaa, according to a report by Al-Arabiya.

Shots rang out as protesters demanding that Saleh face trial entered the city chanting "No to immunity," at the climax of a mass march that started days earlier in the southern city of Taiz, said residents.

The protesters were referring to a deal granting Saleh immunity from prosecution for his part in a violent crackdown on months of demonstrations against his 33-year rule.
