Former diplomat gets jail term in Yemen for ' threatening unity'.

The Primary Specialized Court of Sana'a has sentenced the Yemeni former ambassador to Mauritania Qasim Asker to five years in jail after convicting him of threatening the national unity.

In June 2009, Asker, 58, was charged with committing criminal acts harming the national unity including violating the constitution, spreading the culture of hatred among the people, inciting a rebellion, and organizing unauthorized rallies, and spreading misinformation aimed at disturbing the public security.
