#1 Are these accusations of Iranian intervention related to the arming of a Yemeni religious sect? I can't remember the name, but there's a significant religious minority in, I believe the North Central part of Yemen, that is essentially Shiite. They're called Ismaeli's or something like that. They're considered apostates by the Sunnis. Is this who Iran is accused of arming? Anybody have more insight on this Iran connection?

#2 Wikipedia has an article on the Ismailis, Kentucky Beef -- are they who you thought they might be? I can't speak to your other questions, sorry, but they are good ones. :-)
