SANAA - Yemeni government forces shelled the city of Taiz overnight, wounding at least 20 people, residents said, while politicians raced to implement a Gulf-brokered plan that eased former President Ali Abdullah Saleh out of office last week.

"We are living in an atmosphere of real war. We couldn't sleep from the intensity of the blasts. We came to the aid of five residents of the quarter, whose house a shell landed on," resident Abdullah al-Sharaabi told Reuters by telephone.

Medical sources at a field hospital in Taiz said they had received ten injured civilians and al-Rawdah hospital said it had admitted another ten. Taiz, Yemen's commercial capital, is located some 200 km (120 miles) south of the capital Sanaa.
