Yemen opposition calls mass protests for Friday

SANAA - Yemen opposition groups called on protesters to march on President Ali Abdullah Saleh's Sanaa palace on Friday to demand he step down, hoping to end a crisis his allies abroad fear will benefit Islamic militants.
"Friday will be the 'Friday of the March Forward', with hundreds of thousands of people...We will arrive where you are and we will remove you," opposition spokesman Mohamed Qahtan told Al Jazeera on Wednesday, addressing the Yemeni leader.
