Clinton Tells Yemenis Terrorism ‘Urgent Concern’ for U.S.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Yemen-based terrorists are an “urgent concern” for the U.S. and the development of the Middle Eastern nation.

“They have sought, more than once, to attack our country,” Clinton, on the first trip by a U.S. secretary of state to Yemen in 20 years, said at a forum in the capital, Sana’a. “Stopping such threats would be a priority for any nation, and it is a priority for us.”
