"The international community appeared powerless to address Yemen’s escalating crisis, as Russia and China blocked a resolution on violence against protesters at the UN Security Council on Tuesday night. Weeks of quiet pressure by western governments have so far failed to end a stand-off between supporters of the 32-year rule of Ali Abdullah Saleh and a growing protest movement determined to unseat him."
