SANAA - At least 17 people were killed, including a child, and 50 injured on Monday as Yemeni government forces clashed with protesters, according to medics.

"We have seen gunshot wounds, some were from heavier weapons like ... RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades)," said Dr. Mohammed al-Qubati at a field hospital in the Yemeni capital. "I keep hearing the shelling and thinking there will only be more coming."

Earlier, pro-government snipers firing from rooftops in Sanaa killed three people.
