SANAA - Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Monday he was "holding out" and the majority of Yemenis back him, Al Arabiya television reported.

It was not clear where he made the comments, which came as top generals, ambassadors and some tribes threw their support behind anti-government protesters on Monday in a major blow to Saleh's 32 year-long rule.
