When you think of Yemen it seems to be one of those parts of the world blighted by conflict. In more recent history it was divided between the British and Otter-man empires, then a British Protectorate in the South. Later after becoming independent it became a Marxist state. The two parts would unite only to later fall into Civil war. With no real functioning government the country seems to have fallen into control of extremists with a revolution in 2011, and coup in 2014 and a current civil war. Currently the US and Saudi Arabia are engaged in fighting there against forces said to supported by Iran.
