Yemenis blame Saleh as security deteriorates


(Reuters) - Yemeni protesters demanding an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh's rule said on Tuesday they would insist he leave power soon, blaming him for violence that has raised U.S. fears of chaos that could benefit militants.

Explosions at an arms factory on Monday killed more than 100 people in a southern town where Islamists seemed to have driven out government forces, a reminder of the instability that Saleh's Western allies fear in the poorest Arab state.

Al Arabiya TV said the death toll could rise to about 150.
