The article reports that Qatar withdraws from the Gulf initiative plan due to procrastination over signing the accord being brokered by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's continued escalation, confrontations, and a lack of wisdom in dealing with the protesters calling for his abdication from power is also one of the reasons. It mentions that two people were killed while seven were injured when gunmen fired at protesters in the central city of Bayda.
