3 women hostages slain in Yemen

Motive ?

German intelligence confirmed on Monday the deaths of three young women who were among nine foreigners abducted in a remote district of Yemen last week, while unnamed Yemeni officials cited by news agencies said that all nine had been killed.

A German security official identified the women as Anita Gruenwald, 25, Rita Stumpp, 26, and Young-Sun Ium, a South Korean national whose age was not given. The official spoke anonymously, not being authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Among the kidnap victims were seven Germans, including a doctor, his wife and three children under the age of five, a Briton and Ms. Young-Sum. Most of them worked at a hospital in Saada, in the country’s northwest, and disappeared while on a picnic on Friday.

... and this important discussion continues.

The Rub' al Khali = empty quarter, encompassing Yemen, KSA, Oman, and the UAE, has always attracted its share of brigands, and has had its own rules throughout recorded time.
