Yemen - July 4th, 2011

Dust hangs in the air over Yemen (upper right), and spreads across the Gulf of Aden (right) and the Red Sea (left), from the Arabian Peninsula to the African continent.

Connecting the sea and the gulf is the Bab-el-Mandeb strait, located between Yemen on the Arabian Peninsula, Djibouti and Eritrea, north of Somalia, in the Horn of Africa.
