Jemen - alt flyter

Hans Rustad

Isla­mis­ter har over­tatt en våpen­fab­rikk i en by i Jemen og opp­ret­tet egne kon­troll­pos­ter. Det er ikke vans­ke­lig å for­stå USAs bekymring.

Men hva er alter­na­ti­vet til pre­si­dent Ali Abdul­lah Salen? Hans dager synes talte.

Isla­mic mili­tants seized con­trol of a weapons factory, a stra­te­gic moun­tain and a nearby town in the southern Yemen pro­vince of Abyan Sun­day, said a wit­ness and security offi­ci­als, as a poli­ti­cal stale­mate in the capi­tal cau­ses security to unra­vel around the coun­try.

Resi­dents of the southern Abyan pro­vince said police redu­ced their pre­sence in towns weeks ago. Elsewhere, resi­dents have pushed out police and sol­di­ers and set up their own local militias for self defense.
In the areas they took over, the mili­tants set up check­points around the small factory and in the town of al-Husn, patrol­ling the stre­ets and sear­ching cars, said resi­dent Wahib Abdul-Qader.

They also seized con­trol of a nearby Khan­far moun­tain that holds a radio sta­tion and a pre­si­den­tial guest house, said Ali Dah­mash, an expert on Isla­mic mili­tant groups who lives nearby.

Resi­dents in the nearby town of Jaar, which was seized by the mili­tants on Satur­day, said they heard gun­fire, but the scope of the battle wasn’t imme­dia­tely clear.

The area lies close to the southern port town of Aden.
In anot­her pro­vince of Yemen, security offi­ci­als say sus­pec­ted al-Qaida gun­men kil­led seven sol­di­ers and woun­ded seven others in an attack on a mili­tary post. The attack took place at Ubaida area in the cen­tral Marib pro­vince, anot­her pro­vince where the mili­tant group is active and only under nomi­nal govern­ment control.
