SANAA - Clashes broke out in Yemen's Red Sea port of Hudaida on Monday, wounding at least 15 people as plainclothes police fired shots and protesters responded by hurling rocks, witnesses and doctors said.

Residents told Reuters that plainclothes police, armed with bats, pistols and stones, attacked thousands of protesters who had marched into the streets, moving outside the square where they have been camped out for weeks in demonstrations calling for the end of President Ali Abdullah Saleh's 32-year rule.
