Thousands of women marched toward Yemen's foreign ministry in the capital, Sanaa, Monday, demanding U.N. intervention in the ongoing unrest in the Persian Gulf nation, residents and eyewitnesses said.
The protest comes a day after a female protester became the first woman killed in a demonstration against the government, according to opposition activists.
The women called for sanctions against President Ali Abdullah Saleh and asked that he be tried by the International Criminal Court.
The women also alleged that snipers were on the rooftop of the foreign ministry Sunday.
The protests came hours after gunfire and loud explosions reverberated throughout the capital early Monday.FULL STORY
