Yemen is a country located on the southwest tip of the Arabian peninsula, sharing a border with Saudi Arabian and Oman. Population in Yemen is around 26,737,317 (July 2015 est.). Religious groups are: Muslim 99.1%, and small numbers of Jewish, Christians, Hindu and Baha'i. Yemen is a part of the Arab League. The Houthis a Shiite tibial militia from northwest Yemen, have been at war with the central government for the best part of a decade.

Yemen is a country that is experiencing difficulties with respect to the people and the government that influences the country including the leaders that controls it also that at the moment maybe a revolution is being carried out for certain reasons that people do not like. Or are already tired of suffering from bad decisions by leaders and abuse.

I chose Yemen as a project because I saw it very interesting about the revolution that is happening in these places of the country and also because I would like to know more about countries apart from where I live and to know the reasons that led them to make the decision to do A revolution like the one that happens today and also to know why there are so many conflicts in those places.
