The Critical Threats Project has mapped out the locations of AQAP attacks between 2007 and 2011 to reveal this trend. The growth in AQAP activity in south Yemen in 2010, particularly in Aden, Lahij, and Abyan continued into 2011, when AQAP took advantage of the Yemeni government’s distraction by mass protests resulting from the Arab Spring.
