1 dead amid anti-president Yemen protests

SAN'A, Yemen -- Gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on two soldiers in a market in southern Yemen on Sunday, killing one and wounding the other as protests against the longtime president escalate.

Yemen's opposition, meanwhile, said it is not ready to accept a new attempt to revive a regional initiative to defuse the crisis if it means giving President Ali Abdullah Saleh more time in office.

The gunmen who attacked the soldiers in a market in Abyan province fled the scene, the local official said. -- AP
