Yemen's parliament has approved a request by the country's embattled president to impose emergency law for 30 days, the latest sign that Ali Abdullah Saleh intends to cling to power in the face of a popular uprising demanding his ouster.
The adoption of the request Wednesday was a virtual certainty because Saleh's ruling party dominates the 301-seat legislature.
The law gives security forces far reaching powers to arrest and detain suspects, suspends the constitution, allows media censorship and bars street protests.
Saleh on Tuesday offered to step down by the year's end, but the opposition rejected his offer.
He has also warned that the country would slide into civil war following the defection of senior army commanders to the opposition.
