Terror Detainees on Agenda as Obama Meets Yemeni Leader

President Barack Obama praised Yemen’s “historic” steps toward a democratic government during a White House meeting with Yemeni President Abdurabu Mansur Hadi on cooperation with the U.S. on counterterrorism.

“Our cooperation against those terrorist elements are actually serving the interests of Yemen,” said Hadi, who has been working with the U.S. to improve conditions in his economically strapped nation, which remains an al-Qaeda base.
