SANAA - A number of protesters were wounded on Wednesday when Yemeni security forces fired in the air to halt a march on the cabinet building in Sanaa as demonstrators tried to ramp up pressure on President Ali Abdullah Saleh to resign, witnesses said.

Ambulances and private cars were rushing the wounded from the scene to hospitals, the witnesses said, adding that the march had stopped as protesters helped treat and evacuate those hurt. They said the confusion made it impossible to determine if any had died.
