  • Description

    YEMEN - A NATIONAL STILL SPLIT IN TWO AFTER NEARLY TWELVE MONTHS FIGHTING BETWEEN THE ROYALIST TROOPS OF IMAN EL BADR AND THE PRO-NASSER REPUBLICAN FORCES. THIS IS THE VILLAGE OF EL KAWMA; HEADQUARTERS OF THE IMAN AND BOMBED RECENTLY BY A PLANE THE ROYALISTS CLAIM WAS EGYPTIAN. THEY ALSO CLAIM THAT THE PLANE DROPPED POISON GAS BOMBS - A CHARGE DENIED BY THE EGYPTIANS. VILLAGE CHILDREN ARE SAID TO HAVE BEEN AMONG THOSE KILLED WITH OTHERS LEFT INJURED.

    IN GROUND FIGHTING, THE ROYALISTS HAVE KNOCKED OUT A NUMBER OF ENEMY TANKS, JEEPS AND TRUCKS WHICH, THEY SAY, ARE ALL RUSSIAN BUILT. THE ROYALIST HEADQUARTERS ARE BASED IN A COMPLEX OF CAVES NEAR EL KAWMA, AND FROM THERE THE IMAN CONTROLS ABOUT 50-THOUSAND ARMED TRIBESMEN.

    LATEST REPORTS FROM THE YEMEN SAY ROYALIST TRIBESMEN CLAIM TO HAVE SURROUNDED SANAA, THE CAPITAL, KILLING MANY EGYPTIAN SOLDIERS AND CAPTURING LARGE STOCKS OF WEAPONS. AT THE SAME TIME, THE REPUBLICAN WAR MINISTRY IS REPORTED TO HAVE PROMISED A FULL AMNESTY TO ALL SOLDIERS WHO HAVE DESERTED, PROVIDED THEY RETURN WITHIN A FORTNIGHT.

    EGYPT AND SAUDI ARABIA HAVE BOTH AGREED TO WITHDRAW FROM THE YEMEN, BUT FIGHTING STILL CONTINUES...
