YemenWatch: Tuesday December 21, 2010

A cable released by WikiLeaks says that some nuclear material was left unguarded at a warehouse in Yemen.

Supposedly President Saleh refused to meet with a US diplomat because of some of the WikiLeaks Yemen cables.

Forty separatists were released from prison in Aden.

The World Customs Organization is sending a team to Yemen in mid-January, to help start some new programs.

Yemen just sent a new ambassador to Iraq.

In 2010, 12 Yemeni children died when they stepped on land mines.  Sa'ada is one of the most dangerous provinces for land mines.

A 24-year-old man is facing the death penalty for a crime committed when he was only 15 years old.  Amnesty International is asking Saleh to halt the execution.  Another teenager has already had his execution halted.
