Video shows Houthi takeover of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's residential compound after he disguised himself to escape Sanaa and fly to his hometown of Aden in the south. Hadi had been under weeks of house arrest by the Shiite Houthi militia, who allegedly looted his property soon after his departure. The UN denies having assisted him in returning to Aden, a port city south of Sanaa and the country's fourth largest.

Video shows the presidential palace's abandoned gates and Houthi convoys patrolling the perimeter.

February 8, 2014

A night curfew that was imposed on Baghdad for 10 years was lifted on Sunday, February 8, allowing people to take to the street and celebrate.
Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abbadi ordered the end of the curfew that was usually enforced between midnight and 5 am. Security checkpoints were also removed, which allowed people to circulate more easily.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Ali Nashmi, Iraqi Historian
04:45 – 05:21
“Baghdad has witnessed a night curfew for many years. It was important because bombings used to take place during gatherings and rush hours. The lack of heavy traffic during the night did not mean that there would be no bombings. Some military positions were targeted. Lifting the curfew means that a heavy burden is lifted off citizens’ shoulders, especially the ill and those who returned from abroad. I think it was a right decision that gives moral and political support to the people, who have been suffering for more than 10 years.”

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Ahmad Ali, Resident of Baghdad
05:22 – 05:43
“I think that lifting the curfew is a good decision. I can see that activity in Baghdad is normal. Those who are sick or traveling can go out at any time during the night. Traffic is normal at this time of the night.”

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Anas Abdel Rahim, Resident of Baghdad
05:44 – 06:06
“This is something positive, especially for employees, who are tired and want to have some recreation at night. The curfew is over. As you can see, we went out on the first day of lifting the curfew. This is something positive. We wish that Baghdad returns to its previous state.”

Benghazi, Libya

In downtown Benghazi, normal daily life is gradually disappearing. For the past 15 days, streets have been empty and shops closed as fighting between Islamist militias and forces loyal to former General Khalifa Haftar escalates.
Haftar’s forces continue to advance on positions held by the Benghazi Revolutionaries Shura Council and have resorted to warplane attacks in their bid to control Libya’s second largest city. Mortar shell explosions can be heard in all parts of Benghazi. Violent clashes are still ongoing in Benghazi’s east and near the local university. The university’s administration building was also burned during the exchange of fire.
Government institutions have been closed and most of the roads were blocked. Most of this footage was taken at the rush hour in areas that would normally be crowded with cars and pedestrians, such as Jamal Abdul Nasser, Tipesti, and July 23rd streets. However, after the recent events, travel in these streets became almost impossible. Residents are likely to suffer an economic recession as activity in Benghazi continues to be paralyzed.

طوال اليوم تدور الاشتباكات بين قوات الجيش وعناصر من مجلس الشورى ويسمع دوي أصوات الرصاص ومدافع الهاون في مختلف أنحاء مدينة بنغازي.

والجدير بالذكر أن الإشتباكات العنيفة مارال تدور رحاها في المناطق الغربية من بنغازي وفي محيط جامعة بنغازي تحديداً التي تضررت بشكل كبير وأدت الإشتباكات إلى إحتراق المبنى الرئيسي للإدارة بالجامعة .

Abu Mahmoud, Clothing store owner:
"My opinion concerning the American strikes, or as we say the strikes of the countries of the crusader Arab coalition, it did not affect us at all, and it will never affect us, the regime has been striking us for 3 years and now American and coalition countries are doing the same. Nothing has changed, I am a shop owner and I will keep opening my shop, life goes on and this is our destiny." [Quranic verse]

Nizar Hatem, University student:
"Before the strike we were living a normal life, and after the strike, we are living the same life. Bakeries are open and shops are open. The strike only increased our belief and strength to fight those infidels. We would like to say to Obama something that Haroun al-Rasheed said, "The true story is what you see not what you hear."

IS fighter:
"It only increases our belief in God, and that the Americans are infidels. They want to kill the people who are dying to raise the word of God, and what they did only increases our belief. We will liberate the countries, and we will invade their countries. The strike is only reinforcing our belief. This is a test from God, and a good thing that is happening. The more they attack the Islamic state, the stronger it gets."

Hundreds of Yemenis blocked off main roads and burned tires, in a number of Yemeni provinces, in protest against the latest price-hike of petroleum products, which came into effect on the third day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

On Wednesday morning the prices of fuel had increased from 2,500 to 4,000 Yemeni riyals ($11.6 to $18.6) for 20 liters. The price of diesel also increased from 2000 to 3,900 riyals.
Yemen is considered to be the poorest country in the Middle East with nearly half of its population living in severe poverty.

On 22 May 2014, 34-year-old Alevi-Turkish protester Ugur Kurt, cleaner and father of one, was killed by Turkish police. He was shot in the head by a stray bullet as the police dispersed a group of demonstrators expressing their grief over the Soma mining distaster that had taken the lives of 301 miners on 13 May 2014. The demonstrators were also protesting the shooting death of 15-year-old Berkin Elvan, killed by a police-fired gas canister during protests in March of that year. Kurt, for his part, was killed outside an Alevi worship sight in the impoverished neighborhood of Okmaydani in Istanbul. 

Following these events, the Chepesi Party, an unrecognized political party comprised mostly of young people, clashed with the police. Members of the party shouted "Katil" (Criminals) at authorities. On the morning of 23 May, a police bus was hit by a Molotov cocktail, causing panic among policemen and leading one of them to fire in the air to disperse protesters. As the day continued, clashes in the neighborhood continued. By nightfall, protesters were taking aim at security cameras. More than 38 were arrested during the night of 26 May.

Modern Hieroglyphics of Egypt
Cairo, Egypt
By Mat Wolf
29 Mar 2014

The graffiti and street art in Cairo are an ever-changing landscape and canvases. This art has been able to publicly show the collective unease and disenfranchisement of a younger generation of Egyptians fed-up with both the previous Morsi, and current military-appointed government.

Simple graffiti, i.e. just text saying "Sisi is a killer," "down with the Muslim Brotherhood," etc. is super common in Egypt, and can be found everywhere. However, groups with more artistic aspirations were able to flourish in the period following 2011, creating legitimate works of art and murals in major parts of the city reflecting the fears and frustrations of the Arab Spring. Political, but not necessarily politically aligned with one group, the work was commonly just as critical of Mubarak and the military as it was of the Muslim Brotherhood government.

The Mona Lisa Brigade we see in the photo essay started in 2010 and 2011 at the onset of the anti-Mubarak protests. It has a core group of four permanent members. That number sometimes fluctuates as some members have immigrated to the United States, and others have had to go serve their military time. They originally started out as one of many political graffiti crews in and around Tahrir square, painting images that were anti-military, and anti-Mubarak, but in the last year they’ve decided to choose less political themes out of fear of persecution : they shifted their focus and are doing urban beautification, like painting the faces of neighborhood children on the walls of Ard El-Lewa neighborhood, a low income area of greater Cairo.

But since summer 2013, Egypt's new military rulers have sought to rollback many of the revolution's accomplishments. A new legislation that bans and prosecutes the art form was introduced in November 2013 to outlaw politically-oriented graffiti. Regime intimidation hasn't been solely responsible for the waning of a once vibrant artistic community. Rather, the stark divides in the country between different groups of supporters for the military and Islamists have left little room for artistic commentary. As one artist put it, "criticizing the army puts you in the same camp as the Muslim Brotherhood and criticizing the Muslim Brotherhood puts you the same camp as the army."
