More fallout

overcast

So this little bombing is really getting everybody into a tizzy, and of course we're getting screwed in the mean time. The Yemeni government is refusing to approve travel permits outside of Sana'a, so our trip this weekend to Manakha, the complete opposite direction of Marib, is cancelled. If this keeps up, we might not be able to go to Wadi Hawdramout, which is kinda one of the whole reasons for coming to Yemen in the first place. The governments show of force extended today to the air force booming along ove the skyline today. From what I was able to tell, it was about 8 or 9 jets, althought they might have been circling around. The jets I did see were F-5's and Su-22's, which are used for attacking ground targets, interestingly enough. Anyways, here are some links to the story from CNN:
