Sunday, April 25 at 10 p.m. – America Abroad: Yemen on the Brink

(Rochester, NY) Yemen's on the brink. It's the poorest Arab nation, with a bulging youth population and a sagging economy. Making matters worse, al Qaeda is deeply woven into the national fabric, threatening Yemen, its neighbors and the U.S. "Yemen in Focus" explores conditions on the ground, and asks how Yemen became such a fragile state. Yemen on the Brink airs Sunday, April 25 at 10 p.m. on AM1370/HD-FM91.5-2.

America Abroad is co-hoste by Ray Suarez and Deborah Amos. Suarez is also senior correspondent of the PBS television program The NewsHour. Amos covers Iraq for NPR News, having returned to work with NPR after a decade with ABC news.
