November 19 2001

Reliable sources told YT that eight Yemeni people were killed in the September 11 attacks in the USA. Similarly, the Yemeni citizen, Tarek Saleh Ahmad, has been escorted to his final resting place after he was killed following the US incidents. He was the third of the victims in the US who fell prey to harassment. The Chairman of the Immigrants Corporation said that Yemenis have been greatly affected, and between 2500 to 6000 Yemenis do not know what their fate will be. Due to recent incidents, the majority of Yemenis who have entered America as visitors have families in Yemen who are worried about their fate in the US. They are afraid of being dismissed from their posts because they sustain their families in Yemen.
