Some 200 civilians and army troops have marched in the Yemeni capital to demand the return of the son of deposed longtime autocrat Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Ahmed Saleh, who once commanded the powerful Republican Guard, left the country following a shake-up of the military by his father's replacement and was named ambassador to the United Arab Emirates in 2013. The demonstrators are urging him to run for the presidency.
