Encounter


YEMEN/SAUDI/ IRAN Host Carol Castiel speaks with Ambassador Barbara Bodine, Director of the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University and a former US ambassador to Yemen, and Graeme Bannerman, founder of Bannerman Associates, and specialist on the Gulf at the Middle East Institute, about how Saudi-led air strikes against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen have transformed a political crisis rooted in local grievances, into a proxy conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
