Diplomat says unless there is quick transition of power, Yemen will face "very serious" situation.

    Several Yemeni diplomats have resigned over the government's bloody crackdown on protesters in their home country.

    Khaled Ismail al-Akwa'a, Yemen's ambassador to France, is one of several to sign a letter to president Ali Abdullah Saleh, urging him to resign.

    He says that unless there is a quick and peaceful transition of power, Yemen will find itself in a very serious situation.
