Protesters clash in Yemen's capital

Clashes broke out between pro- and anti-government protesters outside Sanaa University in Yemen's capital Monday morning.

About 200 anti-government protesters were rallying at the site, when about 300 counter-demonstrators carrying pictures of President Ali Abdullah Saleh confronted them.

The two sides threw rocks at each other, and later brandished daggers and
knives.  Some security forces at the scene tried to separate the two sides, while others stood on the sidelines.

    Get some freedom and civility, Yemen, but don't get moral corrosion like the West.

      This has nothing to do with a devalued dollar or the price of food. Folks in Yemen just want to have some dignity and be able to provide security for their families.
      There is a very good chance people protesting would have spent time more wisely watching golf in Dubia.

      Be-happy, let me ask you. Anybody is fighting for freedom and fairness for women, children and minorities there? That's what every decent, educated man must fight for!

    Two hundred people throwing rocks hardly qualifies as a protest. Everyone knows global warming is fake.
