Tens of thousands of Yemeni protesters have rallied across the country, denouncing the killing of 12 people the previous day in the capital Sanaa.

Demonstrators defied heavy rains to condemn the crackdown by forces loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh in several cities, including Taiz and Saada. On Wednesday, security forces backed by snipers on rooftops fired into the crowd of about 100-thousand people in Sanaa, killing 12 and wounding nearly 200 others.

Opposition parties have accused Saleh and his relatives of committing crimes against humanity. Saleh has clung to office despite near-daily protests calling for him to end his 32-year rule.
