Yemeni opposition calls for widescale protests on Friday
The Yemeni opposition called for wide protests against the regime of president Ali Abdallah Saleh after Friday prayers , DPA reported.
The calls were made by the opposition for its followers to take the streets of the capital Sanaa and other areas to protest what they decsribed as "lies by the Yemeni regime."
Saleh, who is in Saudi Arabia recovering from a June assassination attempt, has defied widespread protests since February demanding an end to his 33-year rule.
The Dubai-based Al Arabiya channel said officials from the opposition coalition would meet on Thursday to discuss the national situation.
