Yemenis stage anti-government protests

Yemen’s revolutionary activists have held nationwide anti-government protests a day after a similar event ended in bloodshed in the capital, San’a.

According to Press TV, on Wednesday, Yemenis organized an anti-government protest across the country.
The protesters accuse the government of rampant corruption and mishandling the economy.
They also called on President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government to step down.
On Tuesday, Yemeni government troops opened fire on revolutionaries and their supporters as they were marching towards the office of Prime Minister Mohammed Basindawain in the capital, Sana’a, killing at least seven people and injuring over 100 more.
On Monday, Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said in a TV address that state corruption has outraged the protesters and the government policy of terror would make the people even more resolute to follow up on the problem of corruption in Yemen.
