Hundreds take to the streets protesting Yemen government.

At least 800 marched the streets of Sanaa today to protest against the ruling of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, according to Reuters. Similar to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Seleh is an ally of the U.S. and has ruled for more than 30 years. Fear of chaos and a possible al-Qaeda resurgence caused Seleh to announce he will step down in 2013.
