"Yemeni government opponents clashed with police Thursday in the southern province of Aden, as tens of thousands of protesters rallied nationwide to denounce a deadly government crackdown and demand the president's ouster. The street clashes were triggered by a bomb attack by an unknown armed group on a checkpoint in the provincial capital, Krater, and signaled the rapid deterioration of security in Yemen, a nation that was already beset by poverty and armed conflict before the anti-government uprising that began in February."
