Tuesday in the News

Khalid al-Hammadi of al-Quds al-Arabi has a piece on the on-going dialogue between President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the opposition parties, six in all.

Faisal Mukarim of al-Hayat has a story on the 6th member of the 23 escapees to turn himself back into to Yemeni authorities. This story is from a couple of days ago - there will be more as soon as al-Hayat puts up tomorrow's paper later tonight.)

Hussein Jarbani of al-Sharq al-Awsat writes about the on-going case of newspaper editors being tried for publishing the now infamous Muhammad cartoons.

Al-Jazeera has a story about Yemen's decision to deport three Iraq intelligence officers.

In non-Middle Eastern news: Granta's new issue appears to be on the way, and I'm anxiously awaiting my copy to show up in the mail. It looks very good - the issue is on "politics of religion" - and has an article by Wendell Steavenson, who has written for Slate, and had an intriguing piece entitled "Osama's War," in a previous Granta. Here is hoping this article is just as good.
