"Authorities flooded the streets of Yemen's capital with 2,000 police Wednesday to try to put down days of Egypt-style demonstrations against the president of 32 years, a key U.S. ally in battling al-Qaeda. The policemen, including plainclothes officers, fired in the air and blocked thousands of students at Sanaa University from joining thousands of other protesters who were holding a sixth straight day of demonstrations in the capital of the Arab world's most impoverished nation."
