The piracy off the coast of Somalia is likely to spread to Yemen, according to a US analysts.

A former speechwriter for the leader of Puntland state, Yusuf M Hassan, and former White House Drug Policy Office spokesman Robert Weiner said Yemen’s Government is in danger of becoming a failed state, as weak as its neighbour Somalia.

Hassan and Weiner have called for an international conference in Puntland state, piracy’s main source, where legitimate Somali parties are represented, with foreign diplomats and world media present for maximum visibility.
