Houthi militants in the central Yemeni city of Ibb closed the only station for butane distribution in the city. The measure is an attempt to force provincial authorities to revoke a decision to raise the price of gas.
A Houthi military commander, who introduced himself as Abu Nidal, said that he closed the station because its manager and workers fled and left it unattended. He also explained that the station manager had refused to comply with an order by a Houthi judge to not raise the gas price.
Abu Nidal also said that Houthi militants, who refer to themselves as Ansar Allah, will take over the supervision of gas distribution in the city.

Pro-Hezbollah Rally in Gaza
Gaza Strip

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) holds a rally in Gaza in support of Lebanese Hezbollah movement. The rally was held as a show of solidarity with Hezbollah after one of their key figures was assassinated in an Israeli airstrike in the Syrian controlled Golan heights.

While no longer the formidable military organization it once was, the PFLP maintains a political role in Palestinian society and has strong ties with both Hezbollah and the Assad regime in Syria.

"I was Al-Shabaab"
Nairobi, Kenya
By Antonella Palmieri
10 Jan 2015

Ali's voice becomes shrill when he remembers the exact moment when he decided to flee al-Shabaab in 2007.

"I spent one year with the Shabaab, training with them, fighting, assaulting villages,” he said. “Then one day we went to a village whose inhabitants did not want to pay us taxes. They were all massacred. At least forty children were killed. I couldn’t do it anymore. I saw all the blood, those dead children, and I hid and I started to cry. Why do the Shabaab not accept that their soldiers weep? Especially in the face of the dead. If they see your tears, they kill you. That day I decided to run away.”

Ali (a nickname he’s chosen for security reasons) is a 29-year-old Kenyan who was enlisted by al-Shabaab, a Somali militant group affiliated with al-Qaeda, in Kenya in 2005 and was sent to fight in Somalia. He doesn’t remember how many people he killed, but his eyes are bright with tears when he talks about attacks on villages, defenceless people being killed, children massacred. I met Ali on the roof of a building in the Muslim Quarter in Nairobi city that in recent years has suffered several terrorist attacks in which hundreds were killed.
