Dozens of Yemeni protesters were wounded on Wednesday as security forces and plainclothes gunmen opened fire at thousands marching in Sanaa, witnesses said.

"There are dozens of wounded people," said one witness, requesting anonymity.

Demonstrators left University Square in the capital Sanaa, the focal point of the protests, heading towards the district that hosts the government headquarters, said Tawfiq al-Himyari, one of the organisers.

"Snipers took part in attacking the protest," another witness said.
