Yemeni Shiite rebels and activists took to the streets of Sanaa Wednesday to reject a presidential overture to replace the government and reduce a disputed fuel price hike.The presidential initiative stipulates naming a new prime minister within a week and reducing a recent fuel price hike, two demands of the rebels who accuse the government of corruption.The initiative comes after Zaidi Shiite rebel leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi Sunday urged supporters to press on with a campaign in Sanaa to oust the government.It also calls for bringing the northern province of Amran, where rebels have expanded their presence in past months, under full government control, as well as ending confrontations in nearby Jawf province.The plan has been rejected by both Shiite rebels and southern separatists.
