Yemenis have staged an anti-US demonstration in the northern city of Sa’ada to protest against Washington’s interference in their country's internal affairs.
Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets in Sa’ada following the Friday Prayers, demanding the expulsion of the US ambassador in response to Washington's meddling in Yemen’s domestic affairs.
The demonstrators said Washington’s policies are a major source of trouble for Yemen.
They also condemned US assassination drone attacks in Yemen which have left a large number of civilians dead.
At least five people were killed in a US assassination drone attack in the eastern Yemeni village of al-Qotn on Sunday.
Washington claims it is targeting militants but witness reports and figures provided by local officials indicate that civilians are the main victims of the attacks.
