ADEN, Yemen - Yemeni security forces shot dead three men in south Yemen on Friday and wounded seven others at demonstrations by southern separatists, protest leaders said, but officials said protesters had attacked security personnel and soldiers.

A man was shot by a sniper as he marched with several hundred protesters in Aden who were trying to get into a public square in the Mansoura district of the Arabian Sea port city, said Hussein Zaid bin Yahya, a leader of the Southern Movement.

Security forces and the army had tried to block the protesters' way near the square, Yahya said.

A security official said that "armed elements in the march" had fired on security forces and the army. He could not confirm the protester's death.
