DUBAI - More than 50 protesters in the Yemeni city of Taiz have reportedly been killed since Sunday by troops trying to crush their anti-government rallies, a UN human rights official said on Tuesday.

"The UN human rights office has received reports, which remain to be fully verified, that more than 50 people have been killed since Sunday in Taiz by Yemeni Army, Republican Guards and other government-affiliated elements," UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said in an internet posting monitored in Dubai.
