NYC protest against Yemeni president gets heated when he appears as shoe is thrown By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A protest of the embattled president of Yemen outside the New York hotel where he's staying got heated when demonstrators saw him leave the building.

The dozen protesters had been kept across the street from the Ritz-Carlton hotel Sunday afternoon. They had been waving flags and yelling in opposition to President Ali Abdullah Saleh. He is visiting the United States for medical treatment.

Saleh exited the hotel and waved and smiled sardonically toward the protesters. One of them attempted to charge across the street, but was restrained by authorities. Someone also threw a shoe in Saleh's direction.



Saleh got into his car. His motorcade then left.
