Two months after Yemen's former President Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down as part of a deal brokered by Arab Gulf countries and backed by the United States, protesters continue to demand that he be put on trial.

The power-transfer deal gave Saleh immunity from prosecution in return for relinquishing power, although his party still holds half of all government ministries. He has also remained in the country instead of going into exile as was anticipated.
