Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has ruled out accepting orders or intervention.

Addressing tens of thousands of supporters, Saleh rejected a mediation offer from the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council.

It's calling on him to hand over power to his deputy , in return for immunity from prosecution for him and his family. He lashed out at Qatar for propagating the proposal, as well as Qatar-based Al-Jazeera's coverage of the unrest in his country.

Meanwhile fresh violence broke out in Taiz on Friday, when hundreds of protesters clashed with police.

Police fired gunshots and tear gas. Two protesters were shot dead and 25 wounded by gunfire. Some 200 were hurt by tear gas inhalation.
