Yemenis rally against foreign hands

Yemeni protesters have once again rallied across the country, condemning foreign intervention in the country’s internal affairs.

On Monday, tens of thousands of people marched in the capital, Sana’a and the other key western city of Taizz, a Press TV correspondent reported.

"Death to America, death to Israel," shouted the demonstrators, a Press TV correspondent reported.

They voiced outrage at Saudi Arabia, which has been sheltering Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh following an early-June RPG attack on the presidential palace.

Saleh has been in office for more than three decades with several opposition members arguing that his long-promised political and economic reforms have not materialized.

"People want the downfall of the regime," the angry public also chanted and voiced support for the recently-established transitional council, which represents the ongoing revolution.

Thousands of people have turned out for regular demonstrations in Yemen’s major cities since January, calling for an end to corruption and unemployment and demanding Saleh’ s ouster.

The regime’s brutal crackdown of the demonstrations has so far claimed hundreds of lives.
