One dead, 200 wounded in Yemen clashes

SANAA - One person was killed and 200 wounded when Yemen security forces attacked protesters in the Red Sea city of Hudaida with live and rubber bullets, tear gas, clubs and daggers, a doctor who treated victims said.
A doctor treating protesters in Hudaida said hundreds of security forces and plainclothes police had attacked a sit-in.
"We received around 200 wounded, 10 were hit by gunfire and 40 suffered stab wounds. One died from his gunshot wounds after reaching the hospital," he said.
Demonstrators contacted by Reuters said they were calling on private hospitals to send ambulances and asked Yemenis to donate blood to help treat the wounded. The city's main hospital had been filled to capacity, they said.
