Clinton makes stop in Yemen

Sanaa, Yemen (CNN) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a surprise visit Tuesday to poverty-stricken Yemen, a key al Qaeda battleground and planning center in recent years.

The secretary - who is visiting the Persian Gulf region - was meeting with Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh and was to meet with legislators and members of the political opposition, civic and non-governmental groups and a former child bride.
