Yemen Opposition Agree to End Protests

 The opposition groups protesting against Yemeni dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh have reportedly agreed to stop demonstrations. This comes as the groups and Saleh agree upon a framework suggested by the Gulf community.

This would then lead to Saleh leaving within thirty days.
Mohammed Salem Bassindwa, head of opposition’s national dialogue council, told the Associated Press Tuesday that he expected soon to sign the initiative by the Gulf Cooperation Council, an organization of six neighboring states.
“We have approved the Gulf Arab initiative and the signing of the agreement will take place in the next 24 hours,” he said.
The door now opens for Saleh to go.
