SANAA - Snipers firing from rooftops killed a Yemeni anti-government demonstrator on Tuesday in a city that has seen some of the largest protests against President Ali Abdullah Saleh, witnesses and a medical source said.

"A group of youth were rallying on the outskirts of the protest square, but then a sniper opened fire on them, killing Mazen Abdullah and wounding 10 others," said Bushra al-Maktari, a spokeswoman for the protest movement in Taiz, south of Sanaa.

Eight more protesters were also shot and wounded in the town of Beit al-Faqih in the Red Sea province of Hudaida when riot police opened fire after demonstrators began shouting anti-Saleh slogans, residents said.
