Yemen Prez Refuses to Step Down

Thousands of supporters of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh gathered at his presidential palace Saturday, where he promised he would not resign so long as the majority of Yemen’s people stand by him. “Those jugglers and liars have no sense of shame,” Saleh said of his opposition. But the jugglers and liars aren't backing off: Sanaa, Yemen's capital, was rocked by more protests on Saturday, with tens of thousands of people railing against Saleh, setting tires on fire, and hurling stones at police. Saleh supports stood their ground, too, setting the scene for bloody dueling rallies.
