23 November 2011 Last updated at 15:56 ET
Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has signed a deal under which he will step down after months of unrest.
Mr Saleh signed the agreement, brokered by Yemen's Gulf Arab neighbours, in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
Under the plan, he will transfer his powers to his deputy ahead of an early election and in return will get immunity from prosecution.
But protesters rallying in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, said they would reject any deal giving the president immunity.
