Yemeni women called for the ouster of Ali Abdullah Saleh
BFnews: The demonstrators hit the streets of Sana'a on Saturday to protest the intervention of the United States and Saudi Arabia in Yemeni affairs.

They called for the ouster of Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime and the formation of a transitional council. Some people in graduation outfits protesters against the unemployment crisis in the country.

Earlier in the day, anti-regime protesters held a massive rally in the southern city of Taizz.

Demonstrators called for the prosecution of Saleh, who is now in Saudi Arabia for medical treatment, and officials of his regime over the killing of hundreds of anti-government protesters since opposition rallies began in the country in January.

Since Saleh left the country in early June, anti-regime protesters have been holding daily demonstrations across Yemen, calling for the establishment of a transitional council to prevent him from returning to power.

Saleh is reportedly planning to return to the impoverished Arab state, but demonstrators have vowed to continue holding protest rallies until his regime falls.
