DescriptionEnglish: Note: This map depicts the situation in October 2011. For an updated version, see File:Yemen division 2012-3-11.svg. Map of division in Yemen as of October 23, 2011. Map is limited to information from English-language media, and therefore may be incomplete. Red represents Islamist extremists under Ansar al-Sharia and/or Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Blue represents all other non-government armed groups which are hostile or possibly hostile to the government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, including military defectors, pre-existing rebel groups, and local and kinship-based militias (including those which have worked together with the government against Ansar al-Sharia). Dots indicate specific locations cited by the media as being currently controlled by said groups, while shading indicates provinces (governorates) from which an open armed presence or attacks by said groups have been reported since the uprising began. Purple shading indicates that Ansar al-Sharia/AQAP and other non-government forces both have armed presences reported within the province, while white indicates that no rebel activity has been reported (implying that Saleh's government still fully maintains state power there). Note that unarmed protests are not depicted, and would extend well into the white areas of the map. See also: File:Yemen division 2011-7-7.svg
