Yemen-protest

The economic and humanitarian situation in Yemen is in a period of "serious deterioration" according to the United Nations Security Council.

The 15-member council issued a statement late on Saturday night calling for calm as violence continued in the Gulf country.

It said there had been "heightened tensions and continuing violence" following the return on Friday of President Ali Abdullah Saleh who had been out of the country for three months.
