Yemeni anti-government protesters have once again poured into the streets, continuing to call on all elements of Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime to leave the country.

Demonstrators took to the streets in the southern Yemeni city of Bayda after noon prayers on Thursday, urging the remaining regime elements to leave Yemen, reports say.

The protesters also called for a boycott of US and Saudi products.

Similarly in the southern city of Taizz, protesters held rallies and condemned what they call Saudi and US meddling in their country's internal affairs.

Yemenis have long accused Washington and Riyadh of trying to thwart their revolution.

The protests have intensified since Saleh vowed to return from Saudi to oversee a “national dialogue” and elections.

Saleh was relocated to Saudi Arabia to receive treatment for burns and wounds he sustained in an attack by tribesmen on his palace in Sana'a in June.

The Yemeni revolution began in January, when hundreds of thousands of people turned out for regular demonstrations in Yemen's major cities to call for an end to Saleh's 33-year rule as well as to corruption and unemployment in the country.

They have also been demanding the prosecution of Saleh and his regime officials over the killing of hundreds of anti-government protesters.
