Anti-government protesters control Benghazi, Libya, as dissent fills the streets of Yemen, Bahrain and Morocco.

Mr. Saleh rejected demands that he step down and said Monday that the widespread demonstrations against his regime were unacceptable acts of provocation, though he renewed calls for talks with the protesters.
