Armed Yemeni tribesmen from the Awlaki tribe, the largest clan in Yemen’s southern Shabwa province, gather in the flashpoint region on February 19, 2015 after forming a “popular army” to protect the province from armed militia entering the region. Nearly 3,000 thousand members of the Awlaki tribe reportedly joined the popular army, which opposes the takeover by the Shiite Huthi movement of the government in the capital Sanaa, and is calling for the reinstatement of late president Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.
