Demonstrators assembled on Taez’s main arterial road, chanting anti-Saleh slogans and waving black flags to mourn the embattled president’s 33-year rule, the rally’s organisers said.
Protesters called for the resignation of Saleh, who has been in Saudi Arabia for the past six weeks receiving treatment for wounds sustained in a June 3 bomb blast at his presidential compound in Sanaa.
Three soldiers and seven civilians were killed in Taez on Friday as supporters of the regime clashed with its opponents, leaving at least 37 other Yemenis injured.
