Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Saudi King Meets with Yemen’s President after Fighting Rages in Aden

Saudi King Salman met with Yemen’s President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to discuss developments in the war-torn and ways to achieve security and stability. The meeting came a day after forces allied with the separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) seized the presidential palace in Aden, Yemen’s second largest city, following clashes with pro-Hadi forces that killed upwards of 40 people and wounded at least 260 others. The head of the STC has since announced that he is open to a cease-fire in Aden and prepared to engage in peace talks with Riyadh. The kingdom has four years led a coalition of Sunni regional countries in a battle against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in a bid to restore Hadi’s rule. Hadi, whose seat of power is in Aden, has been living in exile in Saudi Arabia since the Houthis in 2014 took over the capital Sana’a and ousted his government.
