Heavy explosions have been heard in the southwestern Yemeni city of Taizz, where demonstrators have held fresh rallies to protest against foreign meddling in the country.

The protesters have condemned Saudi and American interference in Yemen, stressing that Saudi Arabia and the United States have no right to meddle in their country's internal affairs.

Yemeni regime forces on Thursday opened fire on demonstrators holding a candlelit vigil to protest against regular blackouts, reports said.

Yemen's Ali Abdullah Saleh is currently in Saudi Arabia, where he has received medical treatment for the injuries he sustained in a June 3 attack on his presidential compound.

Meanwhile, residents of a village near the capital Sana'a say forces loyal to Saleh have attacked them, firing six Katyusha rockets, which have destroyed their homes.

The marchers have also called for the swift formation of a transitional council to hinder Saleh from returning to power.

Saleh's top aide said on Wednesday that he would return to Yemen after full recovery.

Influential Yemeni tribal leader, Sadeq al-Ahmar, has warned that Saleh's return to the crisis-hit country could spark a civil war.
