Is Yemen Breaking Apart?

Seale, Patrick
November 2009
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Nov2009, Vol. 28 Issue 8, p31
The article discusses events in Yemen, and accuses the U.S. government of not doing enough to help it. Yemen is described as a poor country, marred by many secessionist movements and ruled by Field Marshall Ali Abdallah Saleh, who has ruled various parts of the country between 1978 and 1990, but is beleaguered by mounting opposition. Expulsion of Yemeni workers from Saudi Arabia, falling world oil prices and internal conflict are cited as factors that contribute to the country's plight, the latter believed to have backing from Iran.
