In the wake of the revolutionary changes in Yemen three camps are fighting it out.

One is led by Yemen's new president and prime minister and they have promised to fulfill the goals of the revolution while fighting al-Qaeda and separatists at the same time.

Another camp is headed by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Although he was forced out of office he still exercises influence behind the scenes.

And in the third camp are activists who say they will never stop until the revolution is complete.

So how is this struggle on so many fronts playing out? With Saleh's son and one of his nephews still holding high military positions, can Saleh still influence the country? What is the role of the US, Iran and al-Qaeda? And is the transition of power meeting the aspirations of the Yemeni people?

On  this episode of Talk to Al Jazeera, we speak to two influential Yemeni citizens: Mohammed Salim Basindawa, the prime minister of the new government; and one of his fellow revolutionaries, a woman who continues her work outside the government structure, Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman.
