    The children look Turkish.

    I know that there was a Turkish influence in Yemen as it was under Ottoman rule. I personally know many Yemeni people who say they have Turkish ancestors. So it could be?? These children don't look stereotypical Yemeni.

    The average Yemeni highlander does not have light colored eyes/hair.

    This is most likely because they are separated by mountains. They may maintain a certain separation from the lowlands, as is common among mountain folk. Don't quote me on this though, this is an assumption based on geographical/cultural isolation.

    I have noticed Yemenies in many forums are described as the darkest arabs skin tone wise, this is clearly wrong. I think that only applies to coastal yemenies
