Yemen crisis

Editor's note: The Associated Press outlines how the conflict in Yemen underscores political complexities for the U.S. in the Middle East. The U.S. is working to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, who has said it provides diplomatic support of the Shiite rebels in Yemen known as Houthis. At the same time, the al-Qaida branch in Yemen is also fighting the Shiite rebels. The al-Qaida branch is also the target of a U.S. drone campaign. The U.S. is a traditional ally of Saudi Arabia, who have begun bombing the Houthi rebels. In Iraq, the U.S. and Iran are both helping the Shiite-led Baghdad government battle the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State group but are avoiding any actual contact. - Stephanie
