    Q&A: Country in turmoil
    Deadly game of elite brinkmanship
    US President Barack Obama has hailed the swearing in of a new president in Yemen as a "new beginning" for the country.

    Mr Obama said the US would be "a steadfast partner to Yemen" in its transition to democracy.

    He also offered US condolences for the deaths of 26 people in a car bombing in Yemen's southern Hadramawt province.

    The attack came hours after Yemen's new President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi was sworn in, in the capital Sanaa.

    Mr Hadi has replaced Ali Abdullah Saleh, who resigned after months of protest.

    "Under President Hadi's leadership, Yemen has the potential to serve as a model for how peaceful transitions can occur when people resist violence and unite under a common cause," Mr Obama said.

    "This week, millions of Yemenis voted for a new president and the beginning of a promising new chapter in Yemen's history.

    "The Yemeni people have achieved a new beginning for their country, but much work lies ahead."

    He added: "I told President Hadi that the United States will stand with the people of Yemen as they continue their efforts to forge a brighter future for their country."

    Al Qaeda hoists their flag over Yemen. I have no doubt that they are rejoicing at the White House.

    Another extortion scheme. The US pays Yemen 100 million and helps the muslem brotherhood take over another country.

    So Al-queda is attacking Yemen while Yemen transitions to a democracy and the GOP thinks its bad to help the country defend itself from terrorists… Jesus
    Seems the only country we can help defend is Israel of which has numerous times whipped out half of the Arab worlds military and could do so again in a blink of an eye
