Yemen tightens visa rules to screen out militants

Yemen will stop issuing visas to foreign visitors upon arrival to try to prevent Islamic militants from sneaking in to meet and train with an al-Qaida offshoot.

Visitors requiring visas will instead have to apply for them at Yemeni embassies abroad before traveling in an effort to better screen out potential militants.

Maybe the United States could learn something from Yemen: be more careful about who you let in to the country.
