Sana'a, Mar 18, 2011- President Ali Abdullah Saleh announced on Friday a nationwide state of emergency in the country.
President Saleh said that the decision was made by the country’s Highest Defense Council, but there was no immediate word on how long the emergency laws would be in place.
Friday's announcement came few hours after clashes erupted at Sana'a University campus between anti and pro government protesters in which at least 41 anti-government protesters were killed and wounded hundreds. No more details were reported.
