    • found: World encyc.("In 1990, after protracted negotiations, the two Yemens merged to form a single republic ... A coalition government emerged from the 1993 elections but increasing economic and political tensions between North and South led to civil war in 1994. The South's brief seccession from the union ended with victory for the Northern army." )
    • found: World book("Yemen (Aden) and Yemen (Sanaa). "In 1990 they officially merged and became the country of Yemen. But disagreements between supporters of the unified country's president who was from North Yemen and its vice president from South Yemen led to a civil war between northerners and southerners in May 1994.")
    • found: Wikipedia, Mar. 7, 2006(North Yemen. "The merger of the two Yemens in 1990 ended the term's association with an independent state but 'North Yemen' continues to be used to refer to the area of the former Yemen Arab Republic and its history and, anachronistically, to pre-1967 polities and events (e.g, the Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen or the North Yemen Civil War.")
