Yemeni police lay razor wire at Al-Sabiine square near the presidential palace in the capital, Sana'a on February 13 to block the protesters.
Yemeni police have clashed with thousands of protesters calling for the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has been in power for 32 years.

At least one woman was injured during the clashes which took place on Sunday in the capital, Sana'a, AFP reported. At least 10 demonstrators have also been arrested.

Around 2,000 people marched during the rallies from Sana'a University towards Al-Sabiine square near the presidential palace. Government forces laid razor wire to prevent people from reaching the palace.

Police also apprehended 120 people among hundreds of protesters, who were rallying in the southern city of Taez's main square.

Pro-democracy protests have been bubbling up in Yemen since January.

On Saturday, thousands of Yemenis took to the streets of the capital, urging Saleh to follow the example of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. "Get out, Get out Ali" and "The people want the regime to fall," some shouted.

Mubarak handed power over to the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces on Friday, giving in to 18 straight days of pro-democracy protests.

The ouster was followed by countrywide jubilation in Egypt and international congratulatory messages, namely from Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah.

Hundreds of thousands of people also went to the streets on the victory day in Yemen to celebrate the occasion.

Saleh has already been in office for 32 years with several opposition members arguing that long-promised reforms have not taken place.

He has pledged to step down at the end of his term in 2013 and has also called on the opposition to join his government. The opposition had agreed to talks with the president shortly before Sunday's clashes.
