Demands to hand over son of military commander
[Yemen Post] Yemen's interior ministry has demanded to swiftly hand over a son of a military commander who is charged with killing a policeman and wounding three others.
The ministry requested to hand over the son of Murad al-Awbali, a commander of the Republican Guard 62th Brigade, expressing its surprise as some authorities operate to hide criminals and killers.
Security sources said that three defendants were handed over and that the main defendant, Mohammad al-Awabli, is still on the lam.

Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...
