Medical officials in Yemen say two protesters were shot dead and more than 20 were wounded when security forces dispersed a demonstration in the southern port city of Aden.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren't authorized to speak to journalists.
A separatist movement that calls for southern Yemen to be an independent state organized the protests. It marked the two-year anniversary of the breakup of a demonstration that left eight dead.
North and South Yemen were separate countries for decades until unification in 1990.
