Yemen revolt begins in central Sanaa

Sapa-AFP | 12 February, 2011 12:460 Comments
Yemenis and Egyptians living in Yemen shout slogans during a demonstration to celebrate the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak outside the Egyptian embassy in Sanaa February 11, 2011. A furious wave of protest finally swept Mubarak from power on Friday after 30 years of one-man rule, sparking jubilation on the streets and sending a warning to autocrats across the Arab world and beyond. The banner reads: "Long live free Egypt".

Several thousand young Yemenis gathered in central Sanaa on Saturday, calling for President Ali Abdallah Saleh to step down and follow the example of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak, an AFP correspondent said.

"After Mubarak, it's Ali's turn," chanted some of the estimated 4,000 protesters, mostly young students.

The protesters then headed off towards Sanaa University, with some crying: "Get out, Get out Ali" and others chanting: "The people want the regime to fall."
