Clashes during a protest of the opposition Yemeni killed and wounded leaves

Sana'a. .- At least one person was killed and ten others injured in a clash between opponents and supporters of the Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in Taiz province, south of the Yemeni capital. According to Efe reported security sources, the clashes began during an opposition rally held in the Yemeni town of Maaf, which was attacked by supporters of the president.

The protesters claimed that the protest was peaceful and students and supporters of Saleh opened fire on them. The attack and subsequent fighting killed an opponent and wounding seven others, while three supporters of the President also suffered injuries. On the other hand, the same sources revealed that "saboteurs elements (southern separatists)" shot dead the director of the state branch of the Agricultural Bank of Dalea City, in southern Yemen.

Protests in Yemen began last January 27 and initially demanded democratic reforms, but now require Saleh's regime fell. The possible solution to the political crisis is at an impasse by rejecting Saleh agreement of the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which provided for peaceful departure from power.
