September 24, 2011 01:58

SANAA - A camp occupied by thousands of anti-government protesters in Yemen's capital Sanaa was struck overnight by mortar shelling and sniper fire which killed one person and injured at least six, protesters and medics said early on Saturday.

"We're in real trouble, we have six severely injured and one killed in a terrible way by the mortar fire -- we only have half a body," said doctor Mohammed al-Qubati, speaking at a mosque being used as a field hospital in the 4-km stretch protesters have dubbed "Change Square."

The doctor said his team had turned out the lights at the hospital for fear of being targeted.
