Sensationalist headline, but…

Despite the headline of this piece from Reuters, Gilles de Kerchove actually makes some very sober points:

I was in Yemen a month ago. It’s a state that really needs to be assisted. It is confronted with many challenges and we have to avoid Yemen becoming another safe haven or another Afghanistan,” de Kerchove told Reuters.”

“It’s a weak state, so indeed we have to mobilise the international community to avoid that happening,” he said on the sidelines of a counter-terrorism conference in the Algerian capital organised by the CAERT research centre.”
