Program: Frontline #3016
Broadcast Date: May. 29, 2012

Coming May 29, 2012: FRONTLINE investigates how Al Qaeda and affiliated militants have seized areas in southern Yemen — and are winning some popular support. Since the death of Osama bin Laden, Yemen has become the hottest front in the war against Al Qaeda. Now, with headlines about a terrorist plot to bomb a US-bound airliner, award-winning reporter Ghaith Abdul-Ahad travels deep into Yemen's radical heartland. In this first-hand report, FRONTLINE looks at how members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and affiliated militants have seized control of areas in southern Yemen and are winning some popular support. Is the United States' expanded drone policy in fact strengthening this new fortified insurgent base? Watch on air and online beginning May 29 at 10 pm ET on PBS (check local listings). to.pbs.org
