Two American tourists kidnapped in Yemen were released after President Ali Abdullah Saleh agreed to free a prisoner, amidst a backdrop of a botched airstrike by the government that killed a local official and incited further violence.

Tribal leaders offered a truce and demanded an investigation, threatening talks with security officials or action against the government if the U.S. was found to be involved.
