AQAP (Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) has been reinvigorated by more support from the Sunni tribes. Some army units in the south have halted operations a ...

On Dec. 5, Ahmed Barakeh, Palestine Islamic Jihad's representative in Yemen, met with the leader of the country’s Houthi rebels. What do the two have in common? And why should this meeting concern us?

Locals describe Manasa as a village, but it's little more than a complex of houses loosely clustered around an earthen courtyard at the end of a bumpy dirt track five hours from Yemen's capital of Sanaa.
On a bright afternoon last month, Waleed al-Daelemi gestured toward a patch of ground in the courtyard. "This is where they cut his throat," he said of a Houthi fighte ...

The Yemeni government, which had been a bulwark in the fight against the country’s potent al Qaeda offshoot, collapsed in September after Shii ...

The government has declared the extension of the nuclear disarmament negotiations for another seven months (to July 1, 2015) as a great victory.
