BBC article here

Is IS (or should we now be calling it Daesh?) also active in Yemen?

And is it still believed to be a place with terrorist training camps?

Even if only a small fraction of these people actually are terrorists, that's a lot of people fanning out, and I suppose they could end up anywhere.

I haven't seen this on the news. Any chance of a link please?

If you click on the first three words of the OP, it'll take you to the BBC story.

Reuters background piece

I really han't realised that IS was, essentially, trying to overthrow AQ in Yemen. What happens if they succeed?
