Demonstrations in Yemen

Thousands of protesters gathered in Yemen's capital, Sana'a, in 2011, to celebrate the resignation of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and to call for their own president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, to step down. Demonstrations continued in major cities until the end of the year. President Saleh resigned in November but held power until the presidential election in February, 2012 when his vice president won the one-man contest.
