US accused of plot to occupy Yemen

Yemeni religious leader says sudden interest in his country is part of foreign plot.



    The United States has classified Abdul Majeed Zandani, a prominent Yemeni religious leader, as a "specially designate global terrorist" for alleged ties to al-Qaeda.

    Others accuse Zandani of stoking anti-American feeling and inspiring a new generation of suicide bombers.

    But Zandani says the growing interest in activities in Yemen is part of a plot to occupy the country.
