In an effort to prevent the poorest Arab nation from becoming an al-Qaeda stronghold, the United States will more than double its security assistance to Yemen, officials said Friday. The announcement highlights mounting concern over Yemen after a failed attempt to bomb a US airliner on Christmas; the suspect is a Nigerian man who reportedly told authorities that he received training and equipment in the country, which borders Saudi Arabia. The increase in US backing for Yemen was announced in Baghdad by Gen. David H. Petraeus, head of the US Central Command.
