Anti-Government Protests In Yemen Turn Bloody

Dozens of anti-government protesters have died in Yemen over the last two days, when loyalist security forces opened fire on the main square in the capital, Sanaa. It has been one of the most violent periods in Yemen's nine-month uprising — which has otherwise been largely peaceful. Les Campbell, who runs the Middle East and North Africa programs at the National Democratic Institute, talks to Steve Inskeep about the political wrangling over the future of the country.
