"Yemen’s embattled president backed away from a mediated deal that would have seen him step down in exchange for legal immunity, and his forces killed four people yesterday while pushing hundreds of antigovernment demonstrators out of a square where they had been camped, witnesses said. ... It was a new blow to efforts to mediate the months-old crisis between the US-backed Saleh and tens of thousands of demonstrators demanding the ouster of their ruler of 32 years, inspired by protests sweeping through the Arab region."
