Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was forced to relinquish power, has moved to the opposition criticizing the national coalition government on Saturday as “weak” and “politically unsavvy.” Saleh accused his political rivals, including army General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar who supported the uprising, of treason and corruption. “We will disclose the files and show the facts for us to see to see who are the protectors of the revolution and its leaders from September 1962 until today and who are those who run forward to survive...symbols of corruption...traitors and agents of the dollar and the Ryal,” Saleh told a crowd of his supporters in Sanna. He also criticized the uprising against him and described his opponents as “thugs.” More»

The worst violence between Israel and the Gaza Strip in nearly a year entered its second day on Saturday, as Israeli aircraft killed 15 militants, according to Palestinian health officials. Militants responded by firing nearly 100 rockets, seriously wounding an Israeli civilian. The airstrikes and rocket attacks could drag the volatile area into broader conflict especially if a large number of civilians are killed on either side. On Saturday, the low whooshing noise of militants firing rockets from border areas toward Israel was palpably heard inside Gaza City. Israeli drones hovered in the skies above. Tens of thousands of Palestinian mourners marched through the streets in funeral processions. They carried slain militants in coffins, their bodies too torn up to be wrapped in cloth, as Muslim tradition dictates. Masked militants sprayed machine-gun fire above the mourners' heads in angry grief. More»

At least 14 youths have been stoned to death in Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shi'ite militants against youths wearing Western-style "emo" clothes and haircuts. Militants in Shi'ite neighborhoods where the stoning has taken place circulated lists on Saturday naming more youths targeted to be killed if they do not change the way they dress. The killings have taken place since Iraq's interior ministry drew attention to the "emo" subculture last month, labeling it "Satanism" and ordering a community police force to stamp it out. To be mentioned that "Emo" is a form of punk music developed in the United States and emo fans are known for their distinctive dress, often including tight jeans, T-shirts with logos and distinctive long or spiky haircuts.

Israel is to begin construction soon on a vast detention facility in the Negev desert to house the thousands of immigrants that cross illegally into Israel from Egypt every year. Human rights groups fear that the detention center, the largest of its kind in the world, with a capacity to hold 8,000 migrants, will turn into a festering refugee camp, and deprive those escaping persecution at home of their rights to seek asylum in Israel. The project was approved by Israel's right-wing government 18 months ago, but many Israelis are uncomfortable about spurning asylum seekers from war-torn African countries given their own history as a nation of refugees.

At least 50 female students have been injured after security forces tried to break up a protest earlier this week at the King Khalid University in the Saudi town of Abha. Students said that about 8,000 students had demonstrated on Wednesday against a move by the university administration to keep cleaners away, after it accused students of not doing enough to help keep their living areas tidy. Following the violence, which took place on the grounds of the university, students said on Friday that they planned to boycott classes after dozens were hurt during the clashes. Several amateur videos have been posted online showing hundreds of women taking part in the protest. More»

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. Officials said the attacks were carried out by Yemeni planes, although some residents thought they were US planes. until now, however, the United States has mainly used drones to target members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which has bases in southern Yemen, a reporter said.

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»
