Deep underground, Yemen’s old, natural sources of clean, fresh water are drying up. Its reservoirs are depleted faster than they are replenished; its groundwater levels plummet by six meters a year in crowded, mountainous regions outside the cities of Sana’a, Taiz, Dhamar, Amran and Sa’ada. Yemenis say ten future generations’ worth of Yemen’s water is being used up no ...

The rebels, a group with roots in the Shiite Zaidi sect, had ...

Saudi Arabia put their disappointing start to the Gulf Cup behind them with a commanding 3-0 win over Bahrain last night to move to the top of Group A.
The hosts, heavily criticised by media and fans after a 1-1 draw against Qatar, responded with an assertive performance, which was further embellished by some embarrassing Bahrain defending.
