SANAA - Thousands of Yemenis protested in Sanaa on Sunday against an immunity law protecting outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh from prosecution and demanded he be put on trial for offenses they say he committed during his 33-year rule.

In the south of the unstable and impoverished country, four al-Qaida-linked militants and one soldier were killed in clashes.

Saleh's immunity from prosecution, part of a deal put together to persuade him to resign, has angered protesters who have accused security forces controlled by Saleh and his aides of killing hundreds of demonstrators in the past year.
