Yemeni protesters shout while marching to demand the trial of outgoing Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh in Sana'a, Yemen, on Thursday, Jan. 19. Thousands of Yemeni protesters marched in Sana'a to denounce a deal of immunity from prosecution to be granted next week by the Yemeni Parliament to outgoing Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh in return for stepping down from power.

It's been nearly a year since the beginning of widespread calls for the ouster of Yemen's president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Today, a Yemeni draft law granting immunity to the outgoing president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, from prosecution over the killing of protesters was amended on Thursday to limit the protection his aides would enjoy, a minister told Reuters.
