Yemen's southern separatists: thirsting for lost independenceYemen’s Prime Minister Ahmed bin Dagher on Sunday accused southern separatists of attempting a coup in the interim capital of Aden after they took over the government headquarters. South Yemen was an independent state — with former British colony Aden as its capital — from its formation in 1967 until 1990, when it was unified with North Yemen under northern leader Ali Abdullah Saleh. Four years later, it launched a separatist rebellion which culminated in its occupation by northern forces.
