The British government said Sunday that Prime Minister Gordon Brown and United States President Barack Obama had agreed to fund a counterterrorism police unit in Yemen to tackle the rising terrorist threat from the country. Brown's Downing Street Office said the UK and the US had also agreed to increase support for Yemen's coast guard operation. Pirates operating in the waters between Somalia and Yemen have seized four ships in the last week. Downing Street said Brown and Obama will push the UN Security Council to create a larger peacekeeping force for Somalia. The British government unveiled its plans in the wake of the thwarted Christmas Day bombing of a passenger plane bound for Detroit.
