41 Yemenis Feared Dead

Street fights in Sanaa have gotten out of hand.

Government agencies and street fighters retaliated against each other with weapons in the capital, Sanaa. The result was that 41 Yemenis got killed in the clashes. The fighting began in the capital but soon spread to other areas of the country. The rule of Ali Abdullah Saleh seems to be coming to an end.

Saleh’s 33 year rule is enough cause for exasperation. The tribal coalition want out. Protesters shouted pro-democratic slogans and demanded rightful justice. Ali Abdullah Saleh’s violent streak has dismayed western governments which once used to support him. The current state in Yemen is wholly nightmarish.
