Military personnel in Sanaa who had months ago defected to the side of Yemen's revolution marched from Change Square and close to the home of Vice President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi on Saturday morning. 

Demands for reform were made by defected soldiers from various branches of Yemen's armed forces, including the Air Force and Republican Guard. 

A government concession had waiting buses carry soldiers to Sanaa's 'Officers Club' to receive their first paychecks in months.  [Luke Somers/Al Jazeera]
