CLEAN:Yemen women oppose proposed child marriage ban

Thousands of women protested outside Yemen's parliament on Sunday against plans to ban marriage for girls under 17. The proposed changes first came up against opposition last summer by Muslim clerics who say they go against Islamic sharia law. Child marriages are common in impoverished Yemen, especially in rural areas, where girls as young as eight are known to have been married off by desperately poor parents.
