Yemen's president to step down, report says 

 

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Yemen's top general are working out a deal to resign from their posts, leaving a civilian-led transitional government to run the nation.
In Yemen, sources told reporters that the deal to settle the political issue arose when Gen. Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, who left the government
in support of protesters, demanded that the president step down.
This week, tanks units loyal to Saleh have been having a standoff with tank
units supporting Gen. Ahmar.
Thousands of anti-government protesters have been clamoring in the streets  in opposition to Saleh's government.
