Yemen: Protests in Aden over rising living costs enter fifth day

Protesters hit the streets of Aden for the fifth consecutive day on Thursday, as they rallied against the rising cost of living following the fall of the local currency. Roads were blocked off as crowds of demonstrators made their way through the southern Yemeni city. «The people will continue with peaceful demonstrations until the moment this corrupt government is brought down, and the full... Еще and free southern state is restored,» one demonstrator said. The value of the Yemeni riyal has plunged over the past few weeks, losing more than half of its value in relation to the US dollar. As a consequence, food and fuel prices have increased up to three times, making them inaccessible for most people.
