UN, US censured over Yemen genocide

Yemeni anti-government demonstrators have censured the US, the UN, and certain Persian Gulf littoral states for allowing the regime of dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh to get away with “genocide”‌.

According to Press TV, demonstrations were held in the capital Sana’a and several other cities on Tuesday.

The United Nations called on the Yemeni government on Tuesday to allow access for aid supplies and UN human rights monitors in the country.

The UN human rights office, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Yemen Humanitarian Country Team have also voiced concern about the deteriorating situation in the country, specifically the southern city of Taizz.

The deadly incidents of the past few days in Taizz took place despite the signing of a power transfer deal brokered by the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council. Under the deal, which was signed by Saleh in Saudi Arabia on November 23, the Yemeni dictator transferred power to his vice president in return for immunity from prosecution.

However, Yemeni protesters have strongly rejected any deal that grants immunity to the dictator.
