YemenWatch: Thursday February 17, 2011

More protests!

Two protesters died in Aden and more laid siege to the police headquarters.  The government is deploying thousands of soldiers, all over Yemen.  Protests continued at Sana'a University.  And President Saleh is going for an open door policy now. 

Journalists covering the protests are being attacked.

Are more regimes ready to fall?

The journalist with alleged AQAP connections, Abdul Elah Haidar Shay, is still in jail.  Saleh was going to release him, until President Obama stepped in .  Saleh is meeting with a tribal mediator to discuss the situation.
