This Reuters photo shows South Yemeni militants. They wave the flag of South Yemen; which became an independent state with a leftist secular government in 1967 after an uprising against British colonial rule.
In 1972, the North Yemeni regime, with help by Saudi Arabia, waged a short war on South Yemen.
In 1979, there was another short war between the North Yemeni regime with help by Saudi Arabia against South Yemen.
In 1990, North and South Yemen united. However, there was dissatisfaction in the south with dictatorial (North) Yemeni President Saleh. An uprising re-established southern independence for a few months in 1994, until it was suppressed with United States support.
Today, Dutch NOS TV reports that supporters of an independent South Yemen have driven the Saudi puppet government out of the south’s biggest city, Aden. The president of the Saudi puppet government was not in Aden anyway, but under house arrest in Saudi Arabia.
