More than 2,000 people have been killed
in a year of protests and political turmoil that led to the resignation of Yemen’s longtime president.
Ali Abdullah Saleh, who ruled Yemen for 33 years, stepped down in February 2012 in a U.S.-backed deal that gave him immunity to ease a transition from his rule. He was widely expected to leave the country after relinquishing power but has instead remained in Yemen. Street protests have continued even after Saleh stepped down, with demonstrators denouncing the ex-president's immunity and demanding he face trial. - AP
