An apparent US drone strike killed two suspected [military age males up to no good] in central Yemen on Monday, a local official said.
The attack took place in the Khobza area of the central province of Baida, the official said on condition of anonymity, adding that an American drone launched the attack.
Yemen’s defence ministry said on its news website 26sep.net that the raid targeted “two members of Al-Qaeda as they as they left a farm on a motorbike,” in Khobza.
It named the two killed as Abd Rabbo Mokbal Mohammed Jarallah al-Zouba and Abbad Mossad Abbad Khobzi.
On Saturday, four suspected [military age males up to no good] died in a similar attack in southern Yemen.
Yumiko iihoshi - Small Utage Tool with Wooden Cover in Gray - OEN
The Utage Tool with wooden cover is possibly one of my favourite pieces from Tokyo based creative Yumiko iihoshi.
Each one is handmade and features a wooden cover to store and protect things inside. The wooden cover is handcrafted and will mature with age, changing colour ever so sightly. The ceramic base is purely a one off and features small marks making each one individual and showcasing its handmade properties.
In ancient Japan the word ‘Utage’ had the same meaning as what Westerners called ‘Party’. The Japanese utilised a kind of square box where foods, snacks and condiments could be stored, and the square box can be extended by adding more to the collection.
‘Don’t wait for it,’ I said. ‘Create a world, your world. Alone. Stand alone. Create. And then the love will come to you, then it comes to you. It was only when I wrote my first book that the world I wanted to live opened up to me.’
