YemenWatch: Tuesday December 7, 2010

You may remember seeing news about a WikiLeaks memo where a Yemeni minister jokes about lying to parliament when he said there were no US air strikes.  Well, parliament is not happy.

Five members of AQAP turned themselves in to authorities in Abyan province.  The government is getting the tribes to put pressure on AQAP.

Four men are on trial for allegedly forming a terrorist cell.

There was a protest in Lahj province, over the arrest of some of the southern secessionists.

It sounds like the Yemeni government may be a bit worried.  A presidential advisor to Saleh keeps saying that Yemen is not like Pakistan, and there shouldn't be any American troops in Yemen.
