They have been on the streets of Sanaa for six months. They continue to call for the end of President Ali Abdullah Saleh's rule 33 year rule. As demonstrations persist in Yemen's capitol city, unrest erupts in other parts of the country. On Sunday, a suicide bomber drove a car into an army checkpoint in Aden killing at least nine soldiers and wounding 21 others. In Tiaz, a woman and a girl were killed during fighting between forces loyal to Saleh and his opponents with both sides blaming the other. They were killed when mortar rounds hit their house. Western powers and neighboring oil giant Saudi Arabia, both targets of Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, have tried to contain rising chaos by pressing Saleh to sign a Gulf-brokered plan to hand over power. He has backed out of the deal three times and has vowed to return to Yemen, once he has recovered from an attack on his palace earlier this year. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
