Excellent analysis on Yemen

Highly recommended: read it at Foreign Affairs.

Today M&C reported tens of thousands (pro and anti govt) protesters rallied in Sanna. Al Masdar has good photos and a write up of the protest in Sana'a (ar). In Taiz, about 20,000 anti-government protesters marched. Nine were wounded in Aden when police opened fire on a large gathering. However, according to my local sources, and preliminary reports, 30 protesters shot by police were received at the hospital including a 10 year old in critical condition. Others are reporting multiple fatalities; the LA Times is confirming two deaths.
