In Yemen, the former leader Ali Abdullah Saleh steps down from this position. This makes him the fourth veteran Arab leader to fall in the midst of large pro-democracy arguing. The last one did so at the beginning of the Arab Spring revolutions. It seems that the argument and craziness of the country was too much for him, therefore he left his position of power. Replacing Saleh, Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi has taken office. In doing so, he vowed to fight and stop Al-Qaeda and restore peace in the country. Hopefully, Hadi will succeed in his wishes and make the area much more pacific than it has been for quite some time.
