Thursday Papers

I made the mistake of listening to bin Laden’s newest tape, which comes with English sub-titles and both an Arabic text and an English translation, before my coffee this morning. The Washington Post has a bit more on the tape, which focuses on Somalia.

Al-Quds al-Arabi
leads with the news about the 12 wanted suspects in Yemen. Khalid al-Hammadi then follows this up with a very good report of his own. Faysal Mukrim at al-Hayat has the same story with less details.

And finally, the BBC has a story with this headline: “South Koreans Urged to Flee Yemen.”
