Laleh Khalili, professor of Middle East politics at SOAS, London: The structures of ports today, particularly the big container ports in the Arabian peninsula, still reflect colonial labour structures. Aden ended up taking DP World, one of the biggest terminal management companies, to court and got to cancel the 35-year container terminal concession with them. Now, when Aden is destroyed in a war waged by Saudi Arabia and UAE, one of the first things UAE announced once they got the control of it, is that they will help rebuild the port. There's such comfortable traffic between war and commerce.

The war in Yemen, with all of its tragedies, keeps on unravelling far from the media flashlights. We talk with Judith Brown, aid worker and founder of Yemen News Today: "What is true is that in effect there are two systems of government, one in Sana'a and one mostly in Riyadh. It's chaos. The situation is even more complex than Syria and it is escalating as USA seems to have joined in the war and Iranian warships are now openly stating that they are in Yemeni waters."
