Protesters in Yemen continue to demand that President Ali Abdullah Saleh step down. Three people died and dozens were wounded in the unrest yesterday and more than 120 people have been killed in the protests in recent months. UN Security Council members have called for restraint and dialogue between protesters and authorities in Yemen. However, the council's first talks on the crisis ended in New York without an agreed public statement, with diplomats saying Russia objected. Hakim Almasmari, editor of The Yemen Post reports that despite the violence, 2.5 million people are expected to march today.
