CAIRO — Despite Iran's pledges, the Shi'ite revolt continues in northern Yemen.
Thousands of Shi'ite rebels are battling the Yemeni military in the Saada province near the northern border with Saudi Arabia. The rebels were said to be obtaining assistance and funding from Iran and Libya.

The Yemeni Army has intensified artillery attacks on suspected rebel-held villages. On May 31, at least 15 people were killed in a Yemeni strike on Souq Al Lail in Saada, Middle East Newsline reported.

I agree. Why is this not headline news? Why does Lebanon matter and not Yemen? Why is Anna Nicole Smith more important than this?
