Stories about Yemen from November, 2011
There have been mixed reactions amongst Yemenis towards President Saleh's signing of the Gulf Cooperation Council deal; some are disappointed and skeptical, while others are joyful and relieved. Noon Arabia reports.
Yemenis have patiently waited ten months too many for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down. Now he says he will sign a GCC brokered deal which transfers power to his deputy. Netizens react to the news under the hashtag #No2GCCdeal on Twitter.
Yemeni netizens scored big time when their Twitter campaign 'Shame on Reuters' pressured the international news organisation to stop its stringer Muhammad Sudam, who has also been the Yemeni President's personal translator and secretary since 2009, from reporting.
Many people were shocked to find out that the reputable and trusted source of news Reuters, has employed Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's personal translator and secretary since 2009, Mohammed Sudam, as its manager in Yemen and head correspondent.
Yesterday's arrival of the UN envoy Bin Omar to Sanaa didn't seem to deter president Ali Abdullah Saleh or his forces from defiantly committing more violence and atrocities in Taiz. The continuous and random shelling by Saleh forces on Taiz's residential areas has caused many deaths and injuries to civilians and destruction of many homes. Noon Arabia takes us to the heart of the suffering of Yemenis in this post.
