Thousands rally for south Yemen independence
Thousands of separatists demanding secession took to the streets of Aden on Saturday to mark the anniversary in 1967 of the independence of former South Yemen.


The demonstrators came from across the south and gathered on Parade Square in the center of Aden, waving flags of the former South Yemen and carrying banners with pro-independence slogans. Security forces watched the crowds from a distance, particularly around public buildings and police and army posts. (AFP)
