The episode previously scheduled (and listing in the TV Listings Guide) for April 7 has been moved to May in order to present a more timely episode of Frontline.  'Trouble With Chicken' which was to air on April 7, will now air on May 12.  In its place WITF will air 'The Fight for Yemen'. 

As recently as September, President Obama was pointing to Yemen as a model for the U.S.'s counter-terrorism strategy. But now, the country -- which is home to one of Al Qaeda's most powerful branches -- is being torn apart in a violent sectarian conflict, led by an anti-American rebel movement, known as the Houthis. With the Yemeni president ousted from the capital, and Saudi Arabia leading a coalition of regional forces against the Houthis, FRONTLINE brings this special report from inside the war zone.

Who are the Houthis -- and what does the chaos and instability mean for the region, the U.S., and the global fight against terrorism? Continuing FRONTLINE's on-the-ground coverage from Yemen, reporter Safa Al Ahmad was granted extremely rare access to the Houthis as they advanced. She has been one of the few reporters for a Western news organizations on the ground, and in The Fight for Yemen, she delivers a dramatic look at the conflict as it has been building.

Join WITF for 'The Fight For Yemen' Tuesday April 7 at 10:00pm.
