SANAA : Yemeni soldiers opened fire on Shi’ite Muslim protesters attempting to storm the cabinet building in the captial Sanaa on Tuesday, killing one, a Reuters photographer said.

The anti-government activists loyal to the Houthi religious insurgent group said two of their members were killed and several were wounded, which could not be immediately confirmed.

Protesters have blocked the main road to Sanaa’s airport and for weeks have held sit-ins at ministries in an attempt to oust the government and reverse unpopular fuel subsidies.
