SANAA - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh thanked thousands of supporters gathered near the presidential palace on Saturday for backing the constitution in a further sign he has no immediate plans to step down.

"I salute you for your heroic stand and thank you for supporting constitutional legitimacy," Saleh told the crowd amid a sea of portraits of the president and banners supporting his continued rule.

Saleh, who has lost the support of many tribal, military and political backers, met representatives of several tribes, officials said, as he dug in against demands for his resignation.
