SANAA - Yemenis flooded the streets of Sanaa and Taiz on Friday in rival demonstrations for and against President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who gave a guarded welcome to a Gulf Arab plan for a three-month transition of power.




He told supporters in Sanaa any arrangements had to be "within the framework of the Yemen constitution" -- language which could mask objections to the plan -- and also vowed to "confront challenge with challenge", but without bloodshed.




Riot police fired in the air in the southern city of Taiz to try to keep vast, unruly crowds of pro and anti-Saleh demonstrators apart, witnesses said. Ambulance sirens could be heard, but there was no immediate word on casualties.
