May 30 - Anti-government protests continue in Yemen as President Saleh remains unwilling to sign a transition agreement. Julie Noce reports.
At least four people are dead and dozens others injured, after security forces opened fire on a crowd of anti-government demonstrators in Yemen. A woman is dragged off screaming... as police attempt to control the masses with water cannons. Uprisings have been on-going since March, as protesters call for an end to the 30-year rule of President ali Abdullah Saleh. International negotiators say they are frustrated with Saleh, who has imposed new conditions each time a transition agreement was due for signing. The situation in Yemen, the poorest country in the Arabian Peninsula, is highly dependent on tribal allegiances-- giving little leverage to outside global powers anyway. Julie Noce, Reuters
