Yemeni women and men converged together in protest against the 30 year rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh on Friday.
Just blocks away, Saleh announced that he will step down to give way to elections, but did not specify when this would take place.
This comes just a few days after he agreed to a GCC-brokered deal to step down and then abruptly rescinded his commitment.
Many of the people taking to the streets remain skeptical, and some do not expect Saleh to step down this time, either.
