Thousand of demonstrators in Yemen have taken the street of the capital, Sanaa, amidst the clashes between tribesman and government forces. The altercations occurred a day after President Ali Abdullah Saleh gave a defiant speech aimed at ending the country’s growing unrest.
After this speech the protesters are calling on the president to step down. “his speech was about creating chaos, not solutions. There was nothing there to solve this crisis,” added Abdullah Magany, a teacher that was present in Change Square.
In the north of Sanaa, anti-government tribesman gave a serious blow to the powerful Republican Guards led by Saleh’s son. So far the government forces have killed hundreds in an attempt to disband the revolt. (AV)
