On Wednesday Yemen's opposition called for civil disobedience across the country. It follows another day of clashes with police, in which eight people died.

Protesters continue to reject any deal that does not include the immediate departure of Ali Abdullah Saleh, the country's president.

Saleh says he is going nowhere until the end of his term, but is he serious about hanging onto power regardless of the cost or is he simply negotiating better terms for his exit? And just what are the prospects for a resolution for Yemen?

Inside Story discusses with guests: Abdul Razak Musa, a Yemeni political activist; Fahad Sholaimi, a Gulf security analyst and former colonel in the Kuwaiti army; and Nora Ann Colton, a professor of international business at the University of East London and the author of the upcoming book The Political Economy of Yemen.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Thursday, April 21, 2011.
