Police disperse separatist rallies in south Yemen

SAN'A, Yemen — A Yemeni security official says security forces have dispersed several separatist rallies across the country's troubled south.
The official says Thursday's protests drew thousands to the streets in several towns in the province of Aden. Participants held banners calling for a "revolution" against the north.
The official says troops detained dozens of protesters. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to talk to the media.
