German Government has earmarked 270 million euros for financing development projects in Yemen, said Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle on Saturday. The minister, speaking at a news conference held shortly before his due departure to Yemen, indicated that the assistance was allocated for Yemeni societies. Step-down of the former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, has paved way for a new chapter in the political life of Yemen, according to KUNA, he said. The German government is ready to offer all needed aid for Yemeni plans to boost stability and democracy for the nation, he added. The minister is flying to Yemen before visiting Saudi Arabia. More»

Thousands of Libyans have rallied in the country's two main cities to denounce moves by leaders in the east to create a semi-autonomous territory. Demonstrators chanted slogans demanding unity and used shoes to hit photos of Ahmed Zubair al-Senussi, the head of the regional council seeking a split. The rallies took place after Friday prayers in the capital Tripoli and in Benghazi, the main city in the east. Tribal and militia leaders there announced the move on Tuesday. Mr Senussi said he was ready to hold talks with the country's leadership about setting up the oil-rich semi-autonomous territory, to be known as Cyrenaica. More»

Zohair al-Qaisi, secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), was attacked because he was planning an attack, the Israelis said. Another militant was killed with him. The Islamist Hamas movement which runs Gaza said at least eight more died in later Israeli air strikes. The Israeli military said dozens of rockets were fired into Israel. A spokeswoman said the rocket attacks had injured at least four people, one seriously. Some of the rockets had been intercepted by Israel's "Iron Dome" anti-missile system, she added. The rockets were apparently fired in retaliation for the killing of the PRC leaders. More»

Al-Qaeda targets were struck close to the city of Bayda, some 130km (80 miles) south of the capital Sanaa late on Friday, officials said. Police and security sources said the strikes had killed 23.

Religious and leftist students fought running battles at a Tunisian university Wednesday in the latest incident involving rising religious sentiment in the North African country. Competing demonstrations in the morning by hundreds of conservative students, known as Salafists, and leftist members of the national students’ union erupted into violence when the former tore down the national flag flying at the university entrance. The Salafis students replaced the Tunisian flag with their own black standard bearing the Muslim profession of faith. The state news agency reported that five students were injured in the clashes, which went on and off throughout the day, including three that had to be hospitalized. Salafi students have been demonstrating at Manouba University near the capital against a policy banning female students from wearing the conservative face veil during classes or exams. They are also demanding a prayer space on campus. Tunisia's dictators rigidly promoted a secular ideology and cracked down on any overt expressions of piety, including women's veils. Since Tunisians overthrew their ruler last year, however, people espousing a more conservative approach to the religion have come out into open - often clashing with leftists. According to Mohammed Bakhti, spokesman for the Salafi students, they were also demonstrating against an assault on Tuesday on two veiled students by the dean of the faculty of humanities, Habib Kazdaghli. For his part, Kazdaghli told The Associated Press the accusations were baseless and he was the one attacked. “One of them barged into my office and attacked me and my books and documents, I had to push her away and I still have bruises from it,” he said. Five students were also disciplined by the university on Tuesday for attempting to wear the veil, including one given a one-year suspension for praying in class. Earlier in the year, Salafi students had held a month’s long sit-in in front of the faculty over the veil issue preventing exams from being held. Kazdaghli, who has become a polarizing figure in the debate, condemned authorities for not intervening to stop the Salafi students. The moderate Islamist Ennahda party leading the government issued a statement Wednesday condemning the attack on the country’s flag. More»

Russia's envoy to the UN has accused Libya of running a training center for Syrian rebels combating the "legal government" of President Bashar al-Assad. "We are concerned by reports that in Libya, with the support of the authorities, there is a special training centre for the so-called Syrian revolutionaries," Vitaly Churkin told the UN Security Council yesterday. Churkin said the rebels were sent to Syria to "attack the legal government." More»

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Amr has warned that arming rebel fighters in Syria would lead to a civil war, his ministry said on Wednesday. Arming the ill-equipped rebels, mainly Syrian army defectors, would “lead to an escalation in the military conflict and spark a civil war in Syria,” Amr said, according to a statement issued by his ministry. Some Arab countries, such as Qatar and regional powerhouse Saudi Arabia, have spoken in favor of arming the rebels. The opposition Syrian National Council has said it wants to organize arms deliveries to the rebels and announced a “military bureau” to coordinate and serve as a conduit for weapons from abroad. But the United States last month warned that Sunni militant group al-Qaeda was seeking to gain advantage of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad, who hails from Syria’s minority Alawite community, a branch of Shiite Islam.

The United States is preparing to provide direct humanitarian and communications assistance to the Syrian opposition in a move that would be a serious step towards the U.S. plan to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Asad. "These moves are going to invest the U.S. in a much deeper sense with the opposition," Foreign Policy quoted an unknown official in President Barack Obama's administration as saying. "U.S. policy is now aligned with enabling the opposition to overthrow the Assad regime. This codifies a significant change in our Syria policy." More»

Iraq nominated former Oil Minister Thamir Ghadhban to the post of OPEC secretary-general, competing against a candidate from the organization’s de facto leader Saudi Arabia. The Iraqi Cabinet approved naming Ghadhban, the 67-year-old current top adviser to the Iraqi prime minister, as head of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, according to an emailed statement. He was oil minister in 2004 and 2005, after the US-led invasion ousted the regime of Saddam Hussein. Iraq is the third-largest producer in OPEC, supplier of about 40 per cent of the world's oil, after Saudi Arabia and Iran. Iraq is pumping more than three million barrels a day, its highest since Hussein seized power in 1979, Oil Minister Abdul Kareem Al Luaibi said on Monday. More»

Raghad Saddam Hussein, daughter of the late Iraqi president, denied allegations of planning a coup in Iraq. “Some press reports said I was in contact with senior military officers in Iraq and providing them with funding to topple the current government,” Alarabiya quoted Raghad’s lawyer Haitham al-Harash as saying Monday. “This is not true,” she wrote in a statement in response to the accusations.  In the statement, Raghad added that her alleged plan to stage a coup in Iraq is not even logistically possible in the light of circumstances through which the country is going. “How can I think of staging a coup against a government supported by the military and protected by the most advanced intelligence and monitoring technologies? The time for coups is long gone and nobody does that nowadays.” More»
