Navideshahed: Yemenis have staged an anti-US demonstration in the northern city of Sa'ada to protest against Washington’s interference in their country’s internal affairs.

Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets in Sa’ada on Friday to show anger with US meddling and urged the government to sever all ties with Washington.

They also accused Saudi Arabia of interfering in Yemen’s affairs.
Meanwhile, thousands of Yemenis took to the streets in the capital, Sana'a and several other cities, to demand the removal of relatives of deposed leader Ali Abdullah Saleh from power positions in the government, the military and security apparatus.

They also called for the prosecution of Saleh and his aides over the killing of nearly 2,000 protesters during the country's revolution last year.

Saleh, who ruled Yemen for 33 years, stepped down after nearly a year of mass street protests against his rule.

He was replaced by his deputy Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi in a single-candidate presidential election backed by the US and Saudi Arabia.
