TAIZ, Yemen - Yemeni police fired in the air near protesters who set up barricades of burning tires in an industrial city on Tuesday as Gulf mediators tried to bring the sides back to talks on the president handing over power.
At least one person was shot dead and another wounded at the protest in Taiz, south of Sanaa, doctors said, as protesters across the country started to test security forces' limits after three months of demonstrations demanding the overthrow of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Police responded with gunfire in Taiz when protesters set up piles of burning tires.
They planned to march past the provincial governor's office.
