A teenager was shot and killed in Aden, Yemen [2] on Monday, February 21 as tens of thousands of demonstrators [3] gathered in four separate cities on the 11th day of protests calling for the end of the three-decade reign of President Ali Abdullah Saleh [4]. At least 11 people have died [5] since the demonstrations began, and Amnesty International says [6] at least 78 people have been injured. Five students remain in police custody [7].

In a press conference on Monday, President Saleh said he refused to step down [8], but did offer to hold talks with opposition parties. This was quickly rejected [9]. The protesters, younger citizens and opposition party supporters, don't appear to be going anywhere soon. Students began camping out [10] at Sana'a University on Sunday. And in Aden, police fired warning shots to disperse protesters, who also said they would make a camp.

Al-Masdar Online has photos from Monday's rallies [7].

Video photographers grabbed shots from all over the country.
