"Supporters of Yemen's embattled president converged overnight Monday on a central square in Hodeidah and killed an anti-government protester and injured more than 150 others, according to witnesses and a medical team member. The fighting around the western Yemeni city's Change Square was the bloodiest since May, and comes as tensions remain high between those who support President Ali Abdullah Saleh and those who have been demanding his ouster for months."
