Bloodshed continues as President Saleh's regime holds on to power in the face mounting pressure

Police shot dead a protester and wounded 30 others in Taez south of Sanaa overnight, witnesses said Wednesday, as world anger over bloodshed in Yemen mounted.

The clashes broke out late on Tuesday when anti-regime protesters staged a fresh demonstration against President Ali Abdullah Saleh's 32-year rule, witnesses said.
Tens of thousands on Wednesday began a march towards the local governorate headquarters in central Taez, witnesses said.

On Monday, Yemeni security forces opened fire on a similar rally killing at least 17 people.
