SANAA - Yemeni security forces opened fire on protesters who blockaded a government building on Monday, wounding 10 in a city that has seen some of the largest rallies seeking to oust President Ali Abdullah Saleh, witnesses said.

"A large force of police and army attacked protesters and then chased them in residential areas. They opened fire and used tear gas heavily," said Bushra Maqtari, an activist in Taiz, south of the capital Sanaa.

Thousands of protesters had gathered outside an education ministry building in Taiz on Sunday, many of them teachers and students, demanding the postponement of school exams. Some also chanted anti-Saleh slogans.
