As of Sunday evening any hopes of a political truce with the Houthis have been shattered. Returning from the northern province of Sa'ada where he met with Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi – the flamboyant leader of this formerly obscure northern Yemeni Zaidi faction - Abdulmalik Al-Mekhlafi, the spokesman of the
presidential committee, confirmed that his delegation had failed to broke ...

A sharp increase in fuel prices threatens to plunge hundreds of thousands of Yemenis into poverty and food insecurity in the Arab world’s poorest country - particularly if regular welfare payments to Yemen's poorest people continue to be dispersed erratically, aid organizations have warned.
The government’s decision to slash fuel subsidies has set off a wave of discontent, with major p ...

Should governments pay ransoms to terrorists to free hostages? The brutal murder of the journalist James Foley by Islamist State terrorists has brought this debate to the fore. Here, in a talk given two years ago, David S. Cohen, US Under Secretary for Terrorism and Finance Intelligence, puts the argument against paying ransoms.

The horrific images and story of 14 murdered soldiers that came out of Yemen on August 8 pale in comparison to those coming from Iraq and Syria. Yet they may presage the emergence of a renewed threat from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) that the U.S and Yemen are ill-prepared to handle. The murders deviate from what has become an accepted level of vi ...

Following the signing in late 2011 of the Gulf Cooperation Council Sponsored peace agreement, after nearly a year of conflict, Yemen faced the dual task of
