Update on Yemen

Thursday, May 12, 2011

While protests have continued across Syria for days, security forces in three cities across Yemen fired on protesters on Wednesday. In the capital city of Sana’a, there were reports that at least six had died and about 100 were wounded. Jeb Boone, a special correspondent for the Washington Post, joins us from Yemen to describe yesterday’s violence and what it means for the protest movement there.

I like to listen to WNYC every day...
Very limited coverage on Yemen, While Saleh is attacking the peaceful protesters every day , since yesterday 20 had died ( ALjazeea) ....

This regime is really misleading everyone including the USA only to get money.
He is on power for the past 33 years, and the end he is rewarding his people by killing them by his sons troops and his corrupted supporters

I hope at WNYC take a close look at the crisis there and help them stopping that by spreading the truth about this guys.

Finally, these millions on the streets are seeking only for peace, freedom, and equality.
