Perhaps a hundred men or more al Qaeda Have Fled to Egypt's Sinai desert, Where Police presence was weak and heavily armed smugglers (who move drugs and people into Israel) Have created a refuge for all spells of illegal groups.

Yemen still HAS enormous economic problems and the corruption is still there. This scares off a lot of foreign investors and Donors.
