The Yemeni government is blaming Al Qaeda's regional wing for today's suicide bomb attack on UK Ambassador Timothy Torlot. While no one was killed, analysts say the attack shows Al Qaeda's continued threat.
Yemen reportedly killed 34 Al Qaeda suspects today. Such steps, together with a new 10-point plan for reform, aim to reverse the Arab nation’s downward trajectory.
Yemeni officials pointed to Shiite rebels that have clashed with the government, but the operation is a marked departure from their style of hostage-taking.
