SANAA, June 20 (KUNA) -- Tens of thousands of Yemenis anew took to the streets in Sanaa Monday, demanding removal of the ruling regime.
The protesters demanded departure of President Ali Abdullah Saleh's relatives from power.
They called for forming a transitional council to run affairs of Yemen until elections were held.
Protests have been held in many parts of Yemen at a time news reports suggest that Saudi Arabia and the US were coordinating with Yemeni parties to insure peaceful power transfer from Saleh to Vice-President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi in line with article 116 of the constitution.
Since President Saleh left for Saudi Arabia for treatment of injuries he sustained from an attack at a mosque inside the Presidential Palace some three weeks ago, Vice-President Hadi has been meeting Western Ambassadors to discuss the situation in Yemen.
Today, foreign minister Abu Bakr Al-Qurabi met with head of the EU mission in Sanaa to discuss conditions in Yemen. (end) az.bs KUNA 202040 Jun 11NNNN
