"Yemen's president said Wednesday he had ordered his security services to protect protesters, stop all clashes and prevent direct confrontation between government supporters and opponents. The directive came at the end of the day when security forces in the southern port of Aden used tear gas and fired bullets in the air to disperse hundreds of protesters, and government supporters wielding clubs attacked demonstrators in the capital Sanaa."
