20,000 march in Yemen against president in ‘day of rage’

Dictators throughout the region have to be having trouble sleeping these days. BBC News:

More than 20,000 anti-government protesters have gathered in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, for a “day of rage” against President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The demonstrators called for a change in government and said Mr Saleh’s offer to step down in 2013, after more than 30 years in power, was not enough.

The gathering is the largest in two weeks of protests inspired by the popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.
