We are a team of Yemen observers who for the next few weeks will examine the trove of Saudi cables released by Wikileaks – marking a significant moment in the history of the modern Middle East. While our focus is Yemen, we may from time to time publish Saudi cables on other significant issues.

The leaked diplomatic documents, which include embassy correspondences and emails, originated from the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs and shed much needed light on the inner workings of the secretive and repressive Kingdom.

“The Saudi Cables lift the lid on an increasingly erratic and secretive dictatorship that has not only celebrated its 100th beheading this year, but which has also become a menace to its neighbors and itself.” – Julian Assange
