Yemen plan to check further rebellion

From Nasser Arrabyee at Gulf News

Salafi schools which are scattered throughout Yemen, are among the schools which the government wants to get rid of to check extremism. Al Houthi followers recently attacked a Salafi school in Sa'ada after accusing them of fighting with the government troops. Though the Salafis do not recognise the constitution or democracy, they call for obedience to President Ali Abdullah Saleh who was elected according to the constitution ...The rebels in Sa'ada in the north of Yemen are deceiving people and their leader Al Houthi is adopting the style of Osama Bin Laden's Al Qaida, said an official in Sanaa yesterday.
