    Yemenis rally, demand president face trial

    Associated Press

    SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Large crowds of Yemenis are rallying in major cities, demanding outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh be put on trial for the deaths of protesters killed during the country’s uprising.

    The protests come just a day after Saleh reversed his decision to leave Yemen, according to his ruling party. The decision may be an attempt to salvage his control over the regime as it is appears to unravel in the face of internal revolts and relentless street protests.

    Tens of thousands marched in the streets of the capital Sanaa on Sunday, chanting that Saleh “must stand before a judge.” Another big crowd of marchers echoed the chant in Taiz, Yemen’s second largest city.

    Activist Fathi al-Hamadi says the “only place for Saleh to go to is the court’s dock.”
