A boy is picked up from the street, a victim of shelling by Republican Guards loyal to president Saleh's son, missing his nose and guts falling out (1st video). While at the same time, Saleh sits with King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia signing a power transfer deal (2nd video) that will end his 33 years of rule in Yemen.
However, as the events on the ground show, the historic signing although much hyped and anticipated by international players (mainly US and UK) has little significance to the people in Yemen. The transfer will occur to the vice president Abdu Rab, who is also wanted out by protesters, and leaves the structure of government and army largely intact with little vision and few plans for change. It is expected that the brutality, crimes against humanity and corruption will continue. To which protesters behind the revolution have already responded by rejecting the plans and continuing with the revolution. The protesters are also enraged that Saleh and key members of his government behind crimes against humanity or corruption are offered immunity under the plan. They vow to continue the revolution until real change is achieved and the president is prosecuted.
The same boy is shown in another clip lying in hospital along with other victims of shelling, this occured in the city of Taiz http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=a3d_1322060258
