SANAA, March 21 (Reuters) - Mohammed al-Ahwal, Yemen's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, has sided with protesters demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, according to a report on Al Arabiya television on Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether he was leaving his post or resigning.

Earlier on Monday, the Yemeni ambassador to Syria resigned from his post as well as from Saleh's ruling party as tens of thousands took to the streets to protest against this three decades-long rule.
