SANAA - Yemen's opposition warned the government on Thursday that violence against street protesters demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh could derail a deal to end the political standoff. "In the event of your inability to protect protesters, we will find ourselves unable to pursue an agreement that the regime seeks to use to shed more blood," the opposition coalition said in a statement.

Plainclothes gunmen killed 10 people and wounded dozens more in Yemen's capital on Wednesday when they opened fire on protesters just days before a Gulf-mediated deal to end the crisis was due to be completed in Riyadh on Sunday.
