About the Rahul Dravid Interview

I'm Asa Fitch and I report on Yemen for The Wall Street Journal. I'm based in Dubai and have been working in the region for seven years.

I've been covering the recent conflict in Yemen and the latest push of the Houthis to consolidate control over the country. I'll be taking input from my colleagues Maria Abi-Habib in Beirut and Hakim Almasmari, who is based in San'a, as we answer your questions and try to help you understand this complicated country at a crossroads in its history. You have the WSJ's entire Yemen team at your disposal.


Edit: Ok folks, I'm going to wrap it up here. Thanks for everyone who participated, and a big shout-out to /r/YemeniCrisis for keeping Reddit up-to-date and informed about Yemen's unfolding conflict. Many thanks to Maria and Hakim, as well.
