    Yemeni Teen Jumps Through burning tires at street riot in Sana'a to protest increase of fuel prices


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Yousef Mawry is a freelance photojournalist working in Yemen. He photographed this image of a Yemeni teen leaping through burning tires during a riot in Sana'a. People have taken to the streets in protest of the recent hike in fuel prices after the government ended its fuel subsidy program.

    Mawry said, "Many spectators were applauding the protesters for blocking off the roads and for burning the tires. Many also joined them. Most of those who took part in the protest are youth and young adults."
