The Yemeni army has killed at least one person after using live rounds to disperse protesters in the center of the country's capital Sanaa, said television network Al Arabiya on Sunday.

The incident follows a week of violence in the city that has raised fears that Yemen, a turbulent, impoverished country where al-Qaida roams the lawless hinterland, is sliding towards civil war.

Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh unexpectedly returned to the country on Friday after a three-month stay in neighboring Saudi Arabia recuperating from a June assassination attempt, prompting competing rallies for the government and opposition.

Some 17 protesters were killed on Saturday when government forces attacked the main opposition protest camp in Sanaa, said witnesses and medics.
