Fighting is intensifying in Yemen and in particular in the capital city of Sanaa. Reports say thousands of armed fighters are flowing into that city to support the Hashed tribal confederation, which is locked in battle with forces loyal to Yemen’s embattled president, Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The main airport is closed in the fractured country that is home to a potent al-Qaeda franchise. Reports also suggest the country is on the brink of civil war.
