YemenWatch: Wednesday November 3, 2010: Part 1

The British are now saying that the source on the two bombs was Al-Fayfi, the AQAP member who surrendered to Saudi Arabia over a month ago.  It has been pointed out that surely AQAP would have changed their plans after they learned he surrendered.

AQAP is warning Anwar Al-Awlaki's tribe not to cooperate with the Yemeni government who, along with the United States, is trying to capture or kill him.


According to a Korean or KNOC official, an oil leak may have caught on fire and caused the pipeline to explode, not AQAP.  They are still investigating.  About 5000 barrels have been lost so far.

Yemen is supposed to have its next parliamentary election in April 2011, and the prime minister (Ali Mujawar) today stated that that was correct.  There have been several articles about that this week:
Mujawar made the statement during his meeting with the ambassadors of Arab States to Yemen. The meeting aims to acquaint the diplomats with the latest developments in the national dialog held between the General People Congress (GPC) and his alliances and the Joint Meeting Parties (JMPs) in addition to the circumstances of the suspicious packages sent to the USA and the fabricated media hype about them.
