al-Zindani escapes again

(Sheikh Abd al-Majid al-Zindani - from al-Quds al-Arabi)

There is not a great deal on Yemen in Tuesday's Arabic press, as it is rightly given over to the horrible bombings in Egypt. However, there are two pieces by Khaled al-Hammadi in al-Quds al-Arabi. One is in the Arts and literature section on poetry in Sana'a. The second is on one of al-Nawadir's closest friends, Sheikh Abd al-Majid al-Zindani. According to al-Quds al-Arabi there was yet another assassination attempt on the Sheikh, which makes 3 in only a few months. The article also talks about al-Zindani's "Married Friends" fatwa, which as it happens I am currently writing about.
