Yemeni Agency Replaces Chairman Who Resigned, Saba Reports

By Donna Abu Nasr

Sana'a, Mar 19, 2011- Yemen’s government-run news agency Saba today appointed a new chairman to replace Nasser Taha Mustapha, who resigned after the most severe government crackdown on protesters left 46 people dead.

Saba identified the new chairman as Tarek al-Shami without referring to Mustapha’s resignation.

In a letter to the country’s president, Mustapha said he could no longer perform his duties “especially after yesterday’s violent events in Sana’a,” Kuwait’s official news agency, Kuna, reported today.
