Yemen women burn veils in protest

Yemeni women are reported to have set fire to traditional female veils in the capital to protest against the government's crackdown against the popular uprising.

Amateur video shows women, purportedly in the capital Sanaa, making a pile of veils in the street which they then doused with petrol and set alight.

The women chanted in Arabic: "You lowlife, you coward".
