It's your turn next, Yemen warns Saleh

“Ali, it’s your turn next, yours and Bashar’s,” the protesters chanted referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Every dictator meets his end,” they chanted as they marched down Sanaa’s Sittine Avenue under the protection of dissident troops of the First Armoured Division.

“Gadhafi’s death has fired up revolutionaries across the world, but especially in Yemen,” said Walid al-Ammari, a spokesman for the youth activists who have spearheaded nine months of protests against Saleh’s rule.
