Over 600 delegates from around the globe gathered in the Yemini capital in mid-January 2004, to attend a conference on democracy, human rights and the role of the International Criminal Court. European judges in their neat bowties rubbed shoulders with veiled Muslim women from the Gulf as colourfully dressed Yemeni guards with ceremonial silver daggers tucked into their belts ushered pin-striped diplomats and Egyptian feminists, in the latest Paris fashion to their seats in the impressive high-ceilinged conference hall in the Presidential Palace in Sana'a. Although the atmosphere was largely friendly in the big hall during the opening and the final sessions chaired by Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, the preparation for the run-up to the conference was not without its tensions.
