Yemeni Photographer Turns Her Lens On The West Earlier this year, Amira Al-Sharif came to New York City to document the lives of young American women. The 24-year-old was born in Saudi Arabia, grew up in Yemen and was the first person from her family to graduate from university. And while Western journalists often document Arab women, Al-Sharif wanted to flip the script.

The government crackdown in Syria has resulted in the killing hundreds of protesters amid reports of extreme human rights violations . Pressure on President Bashar al-Assad is mounting as the U.N. considers an official condemnation on his authoritarian regime. Meanwhile tensions on the Israel-Syrian border remain high. In Yemen, where peaceful protests have also turned violent, the political opposition is pushing for an immediate transition in government, but the situation has been complicated by the evacuation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh to Saudi Arabia where he is recovering from massive injuries incurred in an attack on his compound. We talk about the roots of the uprisings that have swept Syria and Yemen and the complications that challenge the situation in these countries and the broader Arab world. Our guests are CHRISTOPHER BOUCEK of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and MONA YACOUBIAN of the United States institute of Peace.
