Nine countries in the Middle East where 'winds of change' are blowing
Those who said that 'winds of change' were blowing through the Middle East were right. As Egyptians' cries, first of anger and now of jubilation, beam into living rooms throughout the Middle East, here is a look at where those 'winds of change' are taking us.
Yemen's protesters clashed with pro-government forces Monday during a sit-in at Sanaa University in the fourth straight day of unrest in the country. Protests have been on-and-off for weeks now and conciliatory gestures from the government, most notably a promise from President Ali Abdullah Saleh that he would not run for reelection in the 2013 presidential elections, have not been enough to satsify protesters, the New York Times reported. On Sunday, more than 1,000 people turned out in the streets of the capital in a seemingly leaderless event that bore similarities to Egypt's mass uprisings.
