Yemen activist discusses power transfer talks

Al Jazeera interviews Jamila Ali Raja, a Sanaa-based political activist, on the GCC-led power-transfer initiative.

    Yemen's president Ali Abdullah Saleh was expected to sign an agreement on Saturday that aims to end three months of unrest in the country.

    But a government spokesperson says talks about whether he will do that, are "ongoing".

    The opposition is expected to sign the agreement on Sunday.
