Couple of Highlights

I'm still away from home, so the blogging will have to be short, but I wanted to highlight a couple of articles.

First, two from the Yemen Observer. The first on the release of 100 more al-Huthi followers, hopefully this will help to end the low-level insurgency, but more on that later. Second, a supposed assassination attempt against the head of the Aden-Abyan Army. Here is the original article from al-Sharq al-Awsat.

Finally, an article by Gregory D. Johnsen in the Arab Reform Bulletin on Salih trying to restore his reformist credentials.

Just a few highlights to get me through the day.
