Yemeni soldiers opened fire on an anti-government protest in the country’s north, killing at least four people and wounding around seven others, as demonstrations against president Ali Abdullah Saleh continued.

Soldiers fired rockets and artillery at protesters in Semla, a village in the northern province of Amran on Friday, sources said. The area, about 170km from the capital Sanaa, is a Houthi stronghold.

“During a peaceful protest this Friday morning … demanding the fall of the regime, an end to corruption and political
change, a military site fired rockets at a group of protesters and hit dozens of people,” Houthi rebels, named after their leader Abdel Malek al-Houthi, said in a statement.

Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra, reporting from Sanaa, said local security forces dismissed the Houthi’s account of events, saying armed tribesmen tried to enter one of the city’s security checkpoints by force, after which “clashes ensued, three tribesmen and four policemen were injured”.
