33 reported killed in Yemen protests

At least 33 people were killed and more than 100 injured Friday in clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces in Yemen, medical officials said.

Yemen has been wracked by weeks of unrest, with thousands protesting the government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

High unemployment has fueled much of the anger among a growing young population steeped in poverty. The protesters also cite government corruption and a lack of political freedom.

      What needs to happen is that the Germans need to elect a "German" chancellor and quit pandering to the U.S.,Great Britain and France! They should have opposed the "No-fly" zone over Libya,but didn't!!!

      Well said,Cesar. You really know European politics far better than most arrogant and self righteous Americans do.

    On second thought, I revoke my above post and would like to say that the Germans need to pander to France, Great Britain, and of course, the United States. I'm all for the " no fly zone" in Libya. I also have Tea Party in my. blood.

    You can never hurt your credit nitarg by repaying a loan. In some cases however, it may help your credit history to pay it back over time. Just don't make a late payment, and try to make above your minimum payment each time.
