Yemen's opposition says it will send a delegation to Saudi Arabia on Sunday to discuss with Gulf Arab ministers about the transition of power in Yemen.

The latest move from the opposition comes as thousands continue rallying to demand Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh step down. Opposition leaders previously refused to join Gulf-mediated talks with president Saleh's representatives.

They said they wanted to force Saleh out within two weeks and the Gulf plan did not include a quick or clear timetable for the power transition.

Meanwhile, violence has erupted in several parts of Yemen. In the south gunmen tried to storm a police station and a soldier was shot dead.
