    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.
