US to Continue Arming Yemeni Government Despite Massacring of Protesters

The US has acknowledged that it has no plans to suspend its military assistance to Yemen despite the wave of anti-regime protests in the country.

"As far as I know, it has not been," Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said in response to a question whether the US administration was considering withholding military aid to stop the violence against demonstrators.

Tensions are running high in Yemen after 19 anti-regime protesters were shot dead by the police on Monday, with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh facing demands to step down without delay.'
