YemenWatch: Thursday October 6, 2011

Interesting article in The Week about how Yemen may be turning into a "Somalia."  IRIN is also reporting similar problems for Yemen.

Yemeni-Americans in the US state of Michigan are holding a solidarity rally tomorrow for a free Yemen.

Ta'iz is under attack by government forces, and 8 people were killed.

Government forces in Sana'a seem to be preparing for the next protest and shelling killed a child.

More fighting in Abyan province between the military and the AQAP-linked group.  US drones killed 5 members of either them or AQAP itself.

A Yemeni general is saying that Western nations have cut counter terrorism aid to Yemen, as the protests have progressed.

And, of course, AQAP is claiming that Al-Awlaki is alive.
