At least two anti-government protestors were killed and eight others were wounded in an attack launched by government backers on protestors demanding the ouster of Yemen's president in the capital Sanaa late Tuesday, eyewitnesses said.

"Two young anti-regime protestors camping at a sit-in near Sanaa University were shot dead by government backers wielding rifles," Hamoud Hazza, one of the protest rally's organizers, told Xinhua.

"Another eight protestors were wounded by gunshots of the government supporters, two of whom were in critical conditions," he added.
