UK "extremely disturbed" by events in Yemen: Cameron

LONDON, Mar 21, 2011- (Reuters) - Britain is "extremely disturbed" by events in Yemen, which has been torn by protests and violence, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.

"We're obviously extremely disturbed by what is happening in Yemen, particularly the recent events, and we've urged every country in that region to respond to the aspirations of its people with reform and not with repression," Cameron told parliament.

Snipers killed 52 anti-government protesters on Friday, prompting President Ali Abdullah Saleh to sack his cabinet and declare a state of emergency for 30 days.
