Sana'a, Dec 11, 2011
Hundreds of thousands of protesters have flooded the streets of Yemen’s large cities demanding trial for the ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh who stepped down and scheduled new elections for February 21.
However, the protesters want him to face punishment for violent crackdowns on the opposition.
On December 10, Yemen’s new government of national unity led by Muhammd Bassandava was sworn in. Half of the cabinet is represented by the opposition while the rest of the ministers are Assad’s supporters.
