Yemen’s Socotra residents divided in conflict

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — A power-sharing agreement is expected to be signed between Yemen’s government and southern separatists on Tuesday.

But in the remote, and strategically important islands of Socotra, people appear divided. Many support Saudi Arabia there but want the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to go.

They say Abu Dhabi is sending forces to take strategic areas and use them to recruit fighters.
