Sanaa: Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets of Sanaa on Saturday in the largest demonstration against Huthis since the Shiite militiamen overran the capital in September.

"Down, down with the Huthis` rule," chanted the protesters who rallied following a call by the Rejection Movement -- a group recently formed in provincial areas to challenge the powerful militia.
