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.
