The UN Security Council has destined in the strongest terms the terrorist attack in Yemen claimed by a local associate of Al-Qaeda.
According to Obama Yemen is illustrating
foreign terrorists who once might have gone to Pakistan's border area,
where insurgents gather to fight NATO forces in Afghanistan. Washington is raising
its military support for Hadi's government and the U.S. military has targeted
militants in Yemen with drones.
Earlier, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon muscularly condemned the attack, which left hundreds more wounded, and called for the perpetrators to be held answerable. He also urged all Yemenis to refuse violence. Obama's counter-terrorism adviser, John Brennan, called Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to express Washington's condemnation of the assault.
