Yemeni women vow to continue protests

Female anti-government demonstrators defy president's comments on "mixing".


    Yemeni anti-government protests have been growing for weeks, with tens of thousands of men and women joining the call for reform.

    On Friday, president Ali Abdullah Saleh declared the presence of women alongside men in public, as "un-Islamic".

    And now hundreds of women are again taking to the streets, with a new message for the man in charge.
