"Anti-government protesters clashed with police trying to prevent them from marching toward Yemen's presidential palace in Sanaa on Sunday. Some of them chanted, 'First Mubarak, now Ali,' referring to Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Hosni Mubarak, who recently resigned as president of Egypt after nearly 30 years in power. ... Security forces put up a barbed wire barricade and blocked the protesters' path about two miles from the palace. At that point, the situation intensified as protesters turned away and attempted to reach the palace through side streets." (02/13/11)
