Rival Yemeni protests as talks with Shiite rebels fail

Members of the Shiite Huthi movement take part in a demonstration pressing the Yemeni government to quit on August 24, 2014 in the capital SanaaRival protests stoked up tension in Yemeni capital Sanaa on Sunday as a presidential negotiating team abandoned talks with Shiite rebels, accusing them of seeking to ignite a war. President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi urged “vigilance and increased preparation to face any options that could be imposed” on Yemen, at a meeting with the supreme security and military committee, state news agency Saba reported. Pro and anti-government protest leaders used loud hailers to stir up their followers at rallies in different parts of Sanaa, although there were no clashes between the groups, as had been feared. Thousands joined the rebel demonstration in the north of the city, near the interior ministry and other government offices, but tens of thousands gathered in central Sanaa to support Hadi’s government, an AFP correspondent reported.
