Background: It was here, in Yemen's Republican capital at Sana, that the tip-off to Aden's troubles came. Egypt's President Nasser, on a visit last week, delivered a savage speech demanding the removal of British influence from the Aden protectorate...and stating he would help. That speech was both a prelude to this week's attacks and a propaganda exercise to divert attention from Egypt's frustrating was against Royalist Yemen troops. For a year-and-a-half Egyptian troops have tried to wipe out the Royalists...establishing a puppet government but unable to keep it secure.
