President announces Sunday day of mourning on democracy martyrs

SANA'A, Mar 19, 2011- President Ali Abdullah Saleh announced tomorrow a national mourning day on lives of the martyrs of democracy, who have fallen at the University of Sana'a or in other provinces of the country.

This came during his meeting with sheikhs, dignitaries, members of local council and youth of Bani Matar district in Sana'a province.

President Saleh talked to the attendants ,expressing his appreciation for their national positions in defending the homeland's revolution and unity.

He dealt with the unfortunate incident that happened yesterday in the neighborhood of Sana'a University and led to the killing and injuring of a number of people.

In this regard, President Saleh renewed his condolences to the families of martyrs killed in the University and to all martyrs of democracy in the country who have fallen, and wished the injured a speedy recovery.

He held the JMPs responsibility of the wrong mobilization, incitement and chaos that led to violent incidents and falling of those victims.

Furthermore, Saleh reiterated the call for setting at the dialogue table which keeps the homeland away from unrest.

He stressed that the right of peaceful expression of opinion is guaranteed for everyone, noting that the protestors in front of the University can shift to a sport stadium or any other area away from the population and houses, so as to prevent any frictions between them and inhabitants.

At the meeting, the attendants expressed their support to the President's initiatives, which confirmed his keenness on the dialogue and reforms and to keep the nation away from sedition.

They pointed out that the lack of response to these initiatives so far reflects unjustified stubbornness by the opposition joint meeting parties (JMPs).
