Protesters maintain pressure for Yemen regime change


Protesters are keeping up the pressure for a new regime in Yemen.

They have set up tents outside the home of the country’s acting leader, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, demanding a new transitional body and a transfer of power.

Although security forces moved in demonstrators are determined to see regime change. Deadly clashes have brought Yemen to the brink of civil war.

“We are here for a sit-in protest,” said Hadeel al-Yamani, at the camp in Sanaa. She said a mass gathering would trigger demands for a transitional council to be formed as soon as possible.

Badly hurt in a rocket attack on his compound, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is said to be in a ‘stable’ condition in Saudi Arabia. Reports that Yemen’s ruling party has started talks with the main opposition may heighten speculation that the veteran leader might never return.
