Yemen setback for Arabic learning

Once seat of Arabic learning, student numbers drop as country is labelled al-Qaeda haven.

    Yemen has long been a popular destination for students wanting to learn Arabic.

    It allows the learners to immerse in the culture so deep, that it is impossible to survive without picking up at least a little of the language.

    But Yemen has recently been labelled a haven for al-Qaeda and as Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports, this is threatening its reputation as the centre of learning for students of Arabic language.

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