SANAA, Yemen — More than 1,000 people were protesting in Yemen for a fourth straight day, demanding political reforms and the ouster of the US-allied president.
University students, rights activists, and lawmakers marched Monday in the capital Sanaa.
A counter-demonstration by dozens of supporters holding up pictures of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh pictures confronted the protesters, shouting slogans against terrorism and supporting the government's call for dialogue.
Police separated the two groups before the protesters marched toward the city center shouting "Leave Saleh."
Lawyers in black robes, led by their union chief, joined the demonstrators shouting "People want the regime to step down" and slogans against security forces.
