SANAA, Yemen— Some 3,000 students protested at Sanaa University in the Yemeni capital, calling for the country's long serving US-backed president to step down.

Sunday's demonstration marks the 11th straight day of anti-government protests in Yemen. On Saturday, riot police fired on marchers, killing one and injuring five. Seven have been killed since the unrest began.

The protesters seek to oust longtime President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a key US ally in the fight against al-Qaida, and have been inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia.

Marching students chanted and carried signs reading "Get out Ali for the sake of future generations" and "Leave, leave!"

Riot police watched the march but have not yet intervened. Past protests were often attacked by government supporters, degenerating into riots.
