YEMEN - The Gulf Cooperation Council suspends its mediation

The Gulf monarchies were announced May 22 that they "suspended" their mediation in the Yemeni crisis, after President Saleh has again refused to sign the agreement on transition of power. Hundreds of his supporters besieged the embassy of the United States in Sana'a, which brought together the ambassadors of U.S., UK, EU and Gulf countries.

The diplomats were evacuated by helicopter in the evening. Saleh warned against civil war.
