Houthi rebel militiamen fired automatic weapons to disperse protests Sunday in Yemen's capital amid popular anger over their power-grab last week in which President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government resigned.

Witnesses said Houthi militiamen wearing police uniforms fired automatic rifles into the air near Sana'a University to break up demonstrations against their creeping takeover of the country. An opposition TV station also reported casualties after shooting in the Red Sea port of Hodeida.
