SANAA - At least 15 protesters were killed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Sunday, when gunfire broke out at one of the biggest demonstrations against President Ali Abdullah Saleh in recent months, a Reuters witness said, .

Scores were wounded when security forces opened fire on the crowds and sprayed them with tear gas as tens of thousands spilled out of Change Square, where many youths have camped out, demanding an end to Saleh's 33-year rule, a Reuters witness said.

Dozens of men were slumped on the ground, overcome by tear gas inhalation. Men on motorbikes and ambulances whisked them away from the scene.
