"Yemeni security forces opened fire on an anti-government demonstration in the capital, Sanaa, on Wednesday, killing 12 protesters and wounding some 190, a doctor at the scene said. ... Yemenis began a civil-disobedience campaign Wednesday, an escalation of their more than 2-month-old uprising to bring down long-serving President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Shops, schools and government offices were shuttered." (04/27/11)
