In his television first appearance since returning to Yemen several days ago, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was joined by the country's under-16 soccer team - who he congratulated for the victory in the Asian football championship.

On the streets of the capital, there was anger over the longtime leader's return. Soldiers used live rounds against protesters who have called for Saleh to step down. Eighteen people were wounded and medics said two were in critical condition.

Saleh returned to the country after spending three months in Saudi Arabia recovering from an assassination attempt.
