Yemen rejects Saleh offer with biggest protests yet

Nearly 100,000 called today for President Saleh to step down, despite his proposal yesterday for sweeping reforms. But Yemen‘s growing protest movement lacks a coherent plan, raising concern that other groups could seize control of the country.

Antigovernment protesters gather during a rally to demand for the ouster of Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the southern city of Taiz on March 11. Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets across Yemen on Friday, trying to draw record crowds to show Saleh his offers of reform would not soften their demand for his resignation.
