LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown has invited key international partners to a meeting to discuss how to counter radicalisation in Yemen last week's failed attack on a U.S.-bound plane, his office said on Friday.
Brown will host the event in London on January 28. The high-level meeting will be held in parallel with an international conference on Afghanistan the same day.
The high level meeting on Yemen will aim to:
* Identify counter terrorism needs faced by the government of Yemen
* Encourage and coordinate donor effort in order to build Yemen’s government capacity and provide development support to areas most at risk of radicalisation
* Bring forward commitments on capacity building, training of Yemeni forces and better coordination of international counter terrorism efforts in the region * Help Yemen with the wider challenges it faces, including promoting economic, social and political reform

Well guys it seems war in Yemen is becoming increasingly likely. A "high-level meeting" does not sound good. Whether 12/25 was a false flag or real it now means the situation in Yemen is going to get a whole lotta more attention.

Reporting from Cairo - Saudi Arabian warplanes attacked Shiite rebel strongholds in northern Yemen on Thursday in a surge of fighting along the border that followed the death of a Saudi security official at the hands of insurgents, according to news reports.
Saudi fighter jets targeted as many as six rebel positions in Yemen and along the mountainous border. Saudi troops reportedly were heading toward the region to secure villages and prevent further cross-border incursions by Houthi rebel forces, which have been sporadically battling the Yemeni government since 2004.
