Sana'a, May 20, 2011- Millions of Yemeni anti-Saleh protesters took to the streets in Sana'a and others provinces in the biggest crowds against Saleh since the beginning of demonstrations in late January demanding the ouster of the longtime embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

At least 15 of Yemeni provinces witnessed a huge crowd on the Friday of People's Unity to protest against President Saleh.

Meanwhile, thousands of supporters of the president Saleh from across the country gathered in Sana'a to express their solidarity.

President Saleh has been addressing supporters at such gatherings near the presidential palace every Friday for weeks. His supporters are demanding that he stays in power until the end of his term in 2013.
