Thousands of protesters are marching across Yemen, in a Day of Wrath, to condemn Friday's attacks on protests in Aden and call for the end of the Ali Abdullah Saleh regime. According to Amnesty International, clashes on the day claimed the lives of four Yemenis, and left 26 wounded.

Saleh's call for national dialogue to end the protests, that have been taking place for weeks, have been snubbed by the opposition, who only want him and his regime out of power.

In the capital Sana'a, protests by both anti and pro-Saleh groups took place, while Saleh, who has been in power since 1978, accused both Israel and the US for standing behind the latest wave of protests across the Arab world.

On Twitter, the world continues to watch and react to developments in Yemen. Following are some reactions from Yemenis and tweeple paying close attention to developments on the ground:
