Prolazeći ispred zgrade Grada Rijeke na Korzu nisu poštedjeli ni gradsku vlast uzvikujući "SDP lopovi". Nastavili su dalje do Jadranskog trga, gdje su, uzvikujući "Jaco, odlazi", na balkon sjedišta HDZ-a objesili transparent - sliku čovjeka koji kopa po kontejnerima s ispisanom porukom - Ovako izgleda Hrvatska u režiji HDZ-a" i komentar "hoće li nam oporezivati i kopanje po kantama za smeće".

Subotnji prosvjedi u petnaest hrvatskih gradova pokazali su da građani ne odustaju od javnog manifestiranja svog nezadovoljstva stanjem u državi. Kako je bilo za očekivati, i danas se najviše ljudi okupilo u Zagrebu gdje je, prema procjenama, između šest i deset tisuća ljudi tri sata šetalo metropolom. Sve bolja organiziranost, sve više plakata, bubnjeva, megafona, zviždaljki i grupa koje su se priključile. "Nemam novaca za faks. Zašto?", "Hrvatska režimska televizija", "Stranke su problem, ne rješenje" tek su neki od sve brojnijih transparenata.
Dozens of Protesters Are Killed in Yemen
Yemen's pro-democracy protests exploded into violence on Friday, as government supporters opened fire on demonstrators in this capital, killing at least 45 people and wounding more than 200. The bloodshed failed to disperse the angry throng of tens of thousands of protesters, the largest seen so far in a month of demonstrations calling for the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh. ... Protesters have been killed here in recent weeks, but the violence on Friday dwarfed that of earlier clashes. It began almost immediately after the protesters' noon prayers, conducted en masse in the street by thousands. As the protesters rose from prayer, government supporters in plain clothes opened fire from rooftops and windows on parts of the crowd, while security forces fired guns and a water cannon. ... The majority of those killed had been shot in the head or neck, doctors said. Many of the wounded were, too, and were expected to die. Despite the heavy toll, the protesters in Sana kept control of a lengthening portion of Ring Road, which stretches from Sana University to a central highway overpass, as the shooting appeared to halt in the middle of the afternoon. ... “Today is the worst day; this is a new Qaddafi,” said Khalil al-Zekry, who hunkered down in his video shop along the protest route. A coalition of Yemeni opposition parties called the JMP issued a statement saying that “this horrendous massacre” would not “discourage our people from continuing the struggle.” The group said that it held “Mr. Saleh and his family and everyone who participated fully responsible” and called on Yemeni military officers and soldiers to refuse to participate in violence against Yemeni citizens. ... But despite the risk of more violence and instability, there are positive signs in the recent turmoil, Mr. Schmitz added, including the emergence in protests of a political coalition broader and more representative than anything Yemen has seen in decades. ... Demonstrators in the capital have stressed the peaceful nature of their protests. Still, one protester, Abdul-Ghani Soliman, said he was not surprised by the violence. “I actually expect more than this, because freedom requires martyrs,” said Mr. Soliman, an unemployed tribesman from outside Sana. “This will continue, and it will grow.”

2:18am Two soldiers have died in clashes between Yemen's regular army and the Republican Guard, elite forces loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in the southeastern city of Mukalla, medics said. Witnesses said the two forces clashed near a presidential palace in Mukallah late on Monday.
1:30pm Journalists at the 14 October state-run newspaper in the main southern city of Aden have joined anti-regime protesters and decided to cease publishing the paper, one of them said. The decision was taken to "protest against instructions from the Ministry of Information" determining the newspaper's editorial line, one journalist said. He added that Ahmed Hobayshi, the head of the publishing company that prints the paper, decided to stop printing and distribution operations as a sign of solidarity with the journalists.
LIVE: Libyan Unrest: Start of day 10 of no Utilities, Water, or Communication in Misrata
10:58AM: A doctor in Misrata, who wanted to remain anonymous, tells the BBC: “This is the fifth or sixth consecutive day of shelling the city. Our clinic is full of patients. We have no more beds to treat the patients. There is no light in the city. There has been no communication for 10 days and no water for more than one week. And still the heavy shelling continues. The situation is so serious. The international community must take responsibility. Since yesterday we have received 125 injured including an entire family with four children, shot in their car while trying to leave. Even my medical resources are running out. We can’t sustain this any more.”
10:11AM: Residents in two besieged rebel-held cities in western Libya, Misrata and Zintan, said they had been attacked by Gaddafi’s forces, Reuters reported. In Misrata, residents said people had gone out into the streets to try to stop Gaddafi’s forces entering the city. Zintan, near the Tunisian border, faced heavy shelling, two witnesses said, forcing residents to flee to mountain caves. Several houses were destroyed and a mosque minaret destroyed. “New forces were sent today to besiege the city. There are now at least 40 tanks at the foothills of the mountains near Zintan,” Abdulrahmane Daw told Reuters by phone from the town.
9:51AM: Three journalists who went missing in eastern Libya more than 72 hours ago have been arrested by Gaddafi troops, the AFP news agency reports. AFP reporter Dave Clark and photographer Roberto Schmidt were arrested along with Getty photographer Joe Raedle, their driver says. The team drove from Tobruk, near the border with Egypt, to Ajdabiya, which had fallen under the regime's control. They encountered a convoy of military jeeps and transport vehicles “a few dozen kilometres” from Ajdabiya and were arrested by regime soldiers, along with other civilians who came down the road.
4:26am: Abdul Kerim, a member of the rebel National Council in Benghazi, tells the BBC that people there view the international action positively. “Everybody believes now that the United Nations resolution to protect civilians has been acted in a perfect way in Benghazi and everybody is looking now to do the same for Misrata and Zintan. Yesterday a lot of people contacted by telephone calls – different sides – begging United Nations to do the same protection for Misrata and Zintan.”
2:56am: Mohammed Abdule-Mullah, a rebel fighter in Libya, tells the Associated Press news agency that government troops stopped their resistance after the international campaign began. “But pro-Gaddafi forces are still strong,” he says. “They are professional military, and they have good equipment. Ninety-nine percent of us rebels are civilians, while Gaddafi’s people are professional fighters.”
Al Jazeera journalists missing in Libya must be released
Amnesty International has called on the Libyan authorities to release four Al Jazeera journalists held incommunicado since they were detained while trying to leave the country two weeks ago. The two correspondents and two cameramen were arrested in Zantan, near the Tunisian border, and could be at risk of torture. An Al Jazeera cameraman, Hassan Al Jaber, was killed in an ambush in Libya last week. "This is the latest disturbing example of a campaign of attacks and harassment against journalists trying to do their job of covering the conflict in Libya," said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International's Middle East and North African director. "The Libyan authorities in Tripoli must reveal the whereabouts of these journalists, protect them from torture and release them immediately." The missing correspondents are Ahmad Val Wald-Eddin from Mauritania and a Tunisian, Lutfi Al-Massoudi - both 34 years old. Norwegian cameraman Ammar Al-Hamdan, 34, has also been detained along with Ammar Al-Tallou from Britain. It is thought that Lutfi Al-Massoudi may be held in Tripoli, after a CNN correspondent posted on Twitter that one of his colleagues had been detained with a Tunisian correspondent in the capital. Many journalists have been targeted during the unrest in Libya. Three BBC journalists were tortured and subjected to mock executions while being detained by Colonel Gaddafi's forces two weeks ago. Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, a journalist for the UK's Guardian newspaper, was held by the authorities for a fortnight and held in solitary confinement before being freed last week. The Libyan authorities today released four journalists from the New York Times newspaper, six days after their arrest. "Abuses against journalists seeking to report the facts are totally unacceptable and point to a deliberate effort to prevent the truth emerging through the fog of war," said Malcolm Smart.

3:20pm Al Jazeera's correspondent, James Bays, who is 9km from Ajdabiya, said that rebel fighters were attacked 800m from where they are stationed. "... No one really is making any progress. The oppositon are where they were 24 hours ago ... They are lightly armed volunteers ... a professional officer on the rebel side told me they're very brave but to the point of being suicidal. Gaddafi forces are much more heavily armed. The opposition have the numbers and they seem to have the momentum but on the other side the Gaddafi forces have the power."
