The Protests Spread to Yemen

First Tunisia, then Egypt and now Yemen:

Tens of thousands of people in Yemen have taken to the streets in the country’s capital, calling for an end to the government of Ali Abdullah Saleh, the president.

Inspired by recent events in Tunisia and Egypt, opposition members and youth activists are rallying at four different locations in Sanaa on Thursday, chanting for Saleh, who has been in power for 32 years, to step down.

“Enough being in power for [over] 30 years,” protesters shouted during the demonstrations.

The BBC has more on these developments.
