SANAA, Yemen — Yemenis scuffled with police Tuesday as thousands marched in the capital for a fifth consecutive day in Egypt-inspired protests demanding political reforms and the ouster of the country's US-allied president.

Police tried to disperse the demonstrators using tear gas and batons, but some 3,000 protesters defiantly continued their march from Sanaa University toward the city center, chanting slogans against President Ali Abdullah Saleh, including "down with the president's thugs."

The procession gained momentum with hundreds of students and rights activists joining along the way.

Riot police blocked the main road leading to the city center and clashed with protesters throwing stones. Three protesters were injured and rushed to the hospital in ambulances.

About 2,000 government supporters also staged a counter-demonstration in the center, raising concerns about potential clashes.
