    Scores of Yemeni protesters have reportedly suffered injuries and poisoning after the security forces used poison gas to disperse anti-government rallies.


    On Sunday, at least 30 people were injured and 40 others intoxicated after the forces gassed the demonstrators in the western city of Dhamar, a Press TV correspondent reported.

    in addition, a report said 10 people hwere hurt as Yemeni forces fired at protesters in Sana'a.

    Tens of thousands of anti-regime protesters took to the streets of the capital, Sana'a, and the city of Taizz, both located in the west, to call on President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have turned out for regular demonstrations in the two cities as well as the city of Aden in the south, calling for Saleh's removal and the tackling of corruption and unemployment.

    Some 40% of the population lives on USD 2 a day or less in the country and one third face food shortage.

    The protests have been met by riot police or supporters of Saleh armed with knives and batons.

    The death toll in the country has surpassed 300 since anti-government protests began in late January.

    Also on Sunday, Yemeni women held a second day of protests against Saleh after he described the participation of women in protests “un-Islamic.”

    Moreover, thousands gathered for the funeral of a protester who had died from wounds sustained during clashes with the security forces.

    Opposition leaders and Arab foreign ministers held a meeting in Saudi Arabia to discuss the stalemate in Yemen.
