The nighttime sky is ablaze in Sanaa, Yemen as bullets whiz overhead... perhaps in celebration. Pressure to step down is mounting for President Ali Abdullah Saleh-- who is currently receiving medical treatment in Saudi Arabia after sustaining wounds when his palace was attacked last week. Earlier, protests got out of hand at the residence of the president. Protesters scuffled with soldiers... who are actually on the side of the demonstrators... as they demanded the acting leader form a transitional government. Soldiers fired into the air in an attempt to disperse the group. It's unclear when or if President Saleh will return Yemen as reports on the status of his health are conflicting. Julie Noce, Reuters
