Army splits that let Yemen's capital fall augur new risks
By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - As fighting raged at the First Armored Division's base in central Sanaa, General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar arrived in a motorcade at the general staff headquarters and entered the building shouting "Treason! Treason!". "I knew then that Sanaa had fallen and that it was over," the officer, who asked not to be named, told Reuters. "General al-Ahmar was angry and felt utterly betrayed." While many details of the surrender of Yemen's capital by 100,000 Republican Guards to some 5,000 Houthi fighters on Sept. 21 remain murky, the nature of the capitulation bodes ill for President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi's fragile grip on power. Home to an al Qaeda branch held responsible by Washington for three attempted bombings of aircraft in the United States, Yemen is close to becoming a failed state, thanks in part to covert maneuvering from its own ousted ruler and Iran.
