Around 10,000 Yemeni protesters demonstrated on Sanaa's streets on Sunday demanding President Ali Abdullah Saleh be tried in court for crimes ranging from corruption to increasing levels of poverty.
Demonstrators filled the streets for what they called a continuation of protests which began on September 18.
The protesters accuse the president and his family of widespread corruption and failing to address the escalating poverty and enforcing effective gun laws in the country.
The crowds chanted "the people want the army to protect the revolution." Women and children poured water from their windows and rooftops over the protesters in a traditional expression of support.
Recent shootings have claimed around 100 lives, as international pressure mounts on the Yemeni president to step down.
The clashes in the Yemeni capital have delayed a Gulf Cooperation Council initiative that would see Saleh stepping down and handing over all constitutional authorities to his deputy.
