Qat and prisoner exchange

The AP style book strikes again in this article about a man pulled over for speeding and found with a great deal of qat. It is likely he'll get off, or at least all of us here at al-Nawadir hope he will - maybe he can aruge it was shami qat.

Also, in this brief from al-Sharq al-Awsat says that Yemen and Saudi Arabia have come to an agreement on prisoner exchange. Earlier, al-Nawadir reported that Yemen was sending 16 Saudis suspected of terrorism back to the kingdom, and now Yemen is getting 11 of its own citizens in exchange.

There is also this well-informed report by the AFP on why Salih will win re-election, nothing really new here, but it is a good brief on the situation.
