Thanks to the beauty of wireless internet (it is called WiFi, yes?) and Philadelphia, which has become one of my favorite cities over the past few months, I have a few minutes to check the reports from the south.

Al-Tagheer is reporting large demonstrations and a number of arrests. My apologies, but I don't have time for much more than a quick scan of a few articles, so a full analysis will have to wait for later. But from what I hear, Brian is planning something special for later today.

Al-Sahwa confirms the death in Aden that News Yemen reported on earlier and has some pictures from al-Dhala'. (The earlier pictures on the site were file photos.)
