Aden's Al-Qasr Hotel is the temporary home of Yemen's President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi after his return from exile in Saudi Arabia last week, but the flag raised above its entrance is not that of his own government but that of a separatist movement.At the end of a long corridor, past a couple of men in suits standing at a doorway, Hadi is holding a meeting with tribal leaders in an anteroom, sitting at the head of a long table under a portrait of himself and next to a Yemeni flag.It was in Tawahi that some men assembled to wave Al-Qaeda flags soon after the fighting stopped in Aden in July, a reminder that the militant group is waiting in the shadows to pounce if Hadi is unable to restore stability.Hadi has been holding constant meetings with resistance leaders and tribal sheikhs.Such fighters will be paid by the Yemeni government and its Gulf backers, a way in which Hadi is trying to ensure some loyalty from young fighters.
