Thousands of protesters demonstrated Friday across Yemen, some supporting the Shiite rebels who seized the capital and others demanding the country’s south secede after the nation’s president and Cabinet resigned. Arabic on the posters reads, “God is great. Death to America. Death to Israel. A curse on the Jews. Victory to Islam.”
