Opposition to Yemeni President Saleh Mounts

In the wake of a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters on Friday which left over 40 people dead, key Yemeni generals switched their allegiance to the reform movement today. The move may indicate that the military’s backing of President Ali Abdullah Saleh is wavering. Another important figure in Yemeni politics, Sheik Sadeq al-Ahmar, a leader of one of the critical tribes in the country, threw his support behind opposition groups as well. These defections came despite President Saleh’s firing of his entire cabinet Sunday. The deaths of protesters have rocked the country and seem to indicated the clock is ticking on Saleh’s tenuous 33-year reign as President.
