Yemeni mother on what draws her to protests

Tens of thousands of people continue to demonstrate in the streets of Sana'a, the Yemeni capital, demanding the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The protests were started by a small group of students, but have since attracted a wider base of support.

Unusually for Yemen, which is a deeply conservative society, thousands of women are now joining the rallies.

One of them, a young mother called Abir, shared her story with the BBC.
