    Yemen's president has given his first speech to the nation since returning from Saudi Arabia on Friday.

    Ali Abdullah Saleh dismissed the growing protests against him as the work of al-Qaeda terrorists and said that he was committed to a regional plan for a peaceful transfer of power.

    Hours before Saleh spoke, there was more violence as forces loyal to the president targeted protesters, killing at least five across the country.
