Sometimes you can’t catch a break

Well it should come as no surprise to many who read this blog on a regular basis, but June has not been a good month for Yemen – a suicide in Guantanamo, kidnappings and now a plane crash. Yemen usually doesn’t make the news for good reasons – no stories of al-Zubayri’s moving poetry or why al-Hamdani considered Nuqum best for sword blades.

But the anecdote from the opening of this piece by Rebecca Harris that appeared on Foreign Policy’s family of blogs this morning gives a bit of a snapshot of the difficulties Yemen can sometimes face.
