SANAA - At least five people were killed in the protest hotbed city of Taiz on Friday, activists and medical workers said, and the head of a new government meant to prevent civil war in Yemen said a week-old political pact could unravel if the killing went on.

The bloodshed in Taiz made clear that a deal to ease President Ali Abdullah Saleh from power has yet to defuse 10 months of violent unrest over the fate of Saleh and the political future of impoverished country.

Yemen's Gulf Arab neighbors and their US ally hope the deal can reverse a drift toward chaos on the doorstep of the world's top oil exporter, Saudi Arabia, and stop al-Qaida's Yemeni branch gaining a foothold near Red Sea shipping routes.
