Bloomberg News

(11/24, Hatem, Klimasinska) reports, "Four Shiite Houthi Muslims were killed in an explosion at a worship site in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa in an increase of tension in the poorest Arab country." Abdulwahab Alkebsi, regional director for Africa and the Middle East at the Center for International Private Enterprise, explained, "It seems to be quite an escalation of an ideologically- based armed conflict. ... This brings the conflict into the capital, with an attack on worshippers during a time of prayers and reflection." Bloomberg explained, "Yemen suffers from terrorism and civil unrest as it makes the transition to democracy under Abdurabuh Mansur Hadi, who was elected president in February." Read more here.
