SANAA - Yemeni troops fired into the air to disperse anti-government protesters on Monday and two people were killed, including a small child, and several others were rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds.

Violence re-erupted in the Yemeni capital after a weeks-long stalemate and clashes on Sunday in which 26 demonstrators were shot dead.

Injured people were brought on motorbikes to a makeshift hospital in Change Square where protesters have been camped for eight months seeking President Ali Abdullah Saleh's ouster.

One man was pronounced dead while several others had a variety of gunshot wounds, according to a Reuters witness.
