The two Yemens will merge into a republic of about 11 million people.

Habib Bourguiba wore the smiling face of a kindly dictator. The aging revolutionary hero had presided over Tunisia's breakaway from France and, in a country populated with Berber mountain men and Muslim peasants, nurtured a nation that remained among the most Westernized in the Middle East, an Arab haven of gourmet seafood restaurants and liberal divorce laws, a Paris thrust oddly into the middle of North Africa.

Conservative Yemen and Marxist South Yemen have united their armed forces and agreed to withdraw them from their capitals in the latest swift move towards a historic merger scheduled for this month. Officials and diplomats have widely predicted that a united Yemen will be declared before the end of May. The Sana-based weekly publication 26 September quoted "reliable sources" Sunday as saying the declaration will come during the last week of May, six months ahead of schedule.
