Yemen civil authorities take charges of the Al Ghaydah airport

Following months of protests, the Saudi-led alliance is handing control of a Yemen airport near Oman to civil authorities roughly a year after seizing it.

    Yemen's civil aviation authorities are back in control of a local airport.

    Until recently, the Al Ghaydah Airport, near Yemen's border with Oman, was supervised by the Saudi-led forces.

    The change in control appears to be inspiring protests in other parts of Yemen.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
