Rising tensions in Yemen

In the capital, pro-democracy supporters and government loyalists held opposing demonstrations.


    In Yemen, thousands of people returned to the steets for a fifth day demanding President Ali Abdullah Saleh steps down.

    At the same time, swelling numbers of government loyalists occupied strategic locations in the capital, chanting slogans and saying they won't allow pro-democracy protesters to drive the country towards instability and chaos.
