A Yemeni cameraman working for Iraq's state broadcaster died on Saturday after being shot days earlier while covering protests in Sanaa's Change Square, the channel's news director told AFP.
Hussein Yahya al-Wadhaf, 25, had been working with Al-Iraqiya TV for a year, according to Abdul Karim Hammadi. He was shot on Monday, Hammadi said.
"He was covering the demonstrations which saw a heavy reaction from the authorities against the protesters," Hammadi said. "He was shot in his head, went into a coma, and died at 5:00 am (0200 GMT) today."
Hammadi said a funeral was to be held for Wadhaf in Sanaa following afternoon prayers on Saturday.
At least 40 people, among them dissident soldiers, were killed in violence that rocked Yemen's capital on Saturday, according to an activist from the protest organising committee.
Fierce fighting between Yemeni security forces and dissident troops has rocked Sanaa since last week, killing 173 people.
Seventy-eight people have been killed since President Ali Abdullah Saleh returned on Friday after three months in Saudi Arabia, despite his call for peace in the restive country.
