President Obama at podium, speaking at press conferenceWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama condemned the violence in Yemen that killed at least 40 people Friday and injured hundreds, warning that those responsible will be held accountable.

Yemeni government snipers firing from rooftops and houses shot into a crowd of tens of thousands of demonstrators, who were demanding Saleh’s ouster.

Obama said Yemen must advance in an orderly process toward greater democracy and prosperity.
