Anti-government protests continue in Yemen

Thousands gather in Sanaa and Taiz calling for president to step down.


    Thousands have come out in massive anti-government protests in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, and in the city of Taiz.

    The demonstrators want president Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down, and for elections to be held.

    The protests come amid growing uncertainty over the future of Saleh. He's in Saudi Arabia for medical treatment.
