Death toll in Yemen mounts as police and protestors clash

AFP - Anti-regime protesters in the volatile Yemen city of Taez were blasted with a hand grenade Friday leaving two dead and dozens hurt, while violent clashes also erupted in Sanaa, witnesses said.
The grenade attack came as hundreds of protesters took to the centre of Taez after the Friday Muslim prayers to demand the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in protests that have been raging in the city for the past week.
A local official told AFP that the grenade was lobbed at protesters from a speeding car that carried government registration plates.
