Analysis: Donors threaten to withhold Gaza aid
7 October 2014 (IRIN ), Days ahead of a key meeting in Cairo on rebuilding Gaza in the wake of last summer’s bombardment by Israel, the prospect of forking out more millions has left international donors with a frustrating sense of déjà vu: they were in the same position in 2009 and 2012.

Yemen deal brings little solace*
23 September 2014 (IRIN ), With northern rebels claiming the capital Sana'a and Al-Qaeda militants increasing their attacks in the south, Yemen's security crisis is likely to continue, experts believe.
