Read online: Yemen’s language institute shut over unrest
Yemen – The forlorn nine-floor building made of ochre bricks and gypsum stands against the Old City’s sun kissed mountains in the heart of Sanaa. As you enter the classroom, desks and computers are covered in centimetres of dust.
Books and journals belonging to former students are strewn on shelves. The refrigerator is filled with food in pots layered with fungi, a possible sign that the students escaped hurriedly during the fighting last September.
“There is no one in the building,” Abdulhabeeb, the security guard said.
