World powers will gather in London on Wednesday to discuss tackling violent extremism in Yemen.
The meeting was called in the wake of an alleged bid to blow up a US airliner by a Nigerian linked to al-Qaeda in Yemen.
 Ministers and officials from 21 countries chaired by British Foreign Secretary David Miliband will discuss security plus wider economic and political problems facing Yemen, the poorest state in the Arab world.
