SANAA, Yemen — Authorities have flooded the streets of Yemen's capital with 2,000 police to try to put down days of Egypt-style demonstrations against the longtime president. One person has been killed and five wounded when police and protesters clashed in the southern port of Aden.

Police fired in the air and blocked thousands of students at Sanaa University from joining other protesters holding a sixth straight day of demonstrations in the Arab world's most impoverished nation.

Police in Aden used live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas against hundreds of demonstrators. A security officer said a 23-year-old protester was killed Wednesday when he was shot in the head, while a medical official said five others were wounded, at least one seriously.
