“Under pressure from human rights activists to charge suspects or let them go, President Saleh is credited with devising an unusual compromise. He convened a meeting of Yemeni judges and ulama, Muslim clerics, in August 2002. He asked them to have a dialogue with prisoners who believed that the Koran promoted jihad, or war, against non-Muslims. His declared goal was ambitious: to persuade the prisoners they were wrong and to get them to reject violence.”
