Caricatures highlight perceptions on Yemen's transition

Rashad Al-Samii brings the Yemeni flag to life, where intra-political power struggles are crushing the average citizen.

The forgotten wounded protesters of the revolution are the subject of Hilal Al-Muraqib's caricature, with the word "dialogue" written across the young man. (The arrow says revolutionary youth)

Kamal Sharaf portrays the powerless citizen in the wake of powerful armed groups in Yemen -At a checkpoint soldier asks harmless citizen"do you have weapons"? while he ignores the powerful armed men.
