Happy Christmas Liveleak, happy Christmas USA, Ali Abdullah Saleh is coming your way while his forces shoot his people in the head! Today he announced he is definately coming to the USA to get away from the protests!
Protesters from Taiz city march for days to the capital Sanaa, starting with several thousand the mass gains people at every town until it is estimated at 100,000 when it entered Sanaa today. The march was repeatedly shot at along the route, then in the southern suburbs of Sanaa the slaughter shown in the first video occured at the hands of loyalist Central Security and Republican Guards, under the command of the nephew and son of the president Ali Abdullah Saleh, killing at least 9 and injuring over 100 with live fire. The second video shows part of the march in the Dhamar area the previous day and the people lining the roads greeting them.
The protesters are demanding that those responsible for crimes against humanity during the revolution are put on trial, but the US administration seeks immunity for them resulting in total chaos as the rule of law cannot be established.
UPDATE: It is now confirmed that at least 16 people were killed by the security forces, mostly by head and upper torso gun wounds, and many hundreds injured, and the death toll will likely rise as some are in a critical condition. The US ambassador Gerald Feierstein has become personally embroilled in the crime, shortly before the attack he condemned the march and condoned the use of force against it, which was taken as a green light by security to attack. The US ambassador is strongly pushing for immunity for those responsible for crimes against humanity and corruption, including the president and his family. By contrast, Human Rights Watch condemned the attack on the march shown in this video. Similarly Yemen's revolution activists have condemned the attack, including the Nobel peace prize winner Tawakkul Karman who described the ambassador as a "wild man" (out of control) after he voiced his support for the killing of protesters. The Yemeni revolution is now asking the US administration to replace the ambassador.
