The government is cracking down on journalists as well as terrorists. Adam Baron, a freelance journalist who has been in the country for three years, was deported from the country. James Asher, the Washington bureau chief for McClatchy confirmed the deportation to the Huffington Post saying Baron, "believes the deportation is about his journalism."
Iona Craig, of the London Times, says the government made it extremely difficult for foreign journalists to operate.
"One of the reasons why there's such an issue with a lot coverage of Yemen is that it's being covered from elsewhere," Baron said, "when this is a country that you really need to be deeply enmeshed in to really understand."
The U.S. State Department has not commented on the deportation.
