Workers paint a historical building in Tarim city in the south-eastern Yemeni province of Hadramout February 24, 2010. Workers fix potholes, paint mosques and refurbish historic buildings in this sleepy city in Yemen's vast Hadramaut region, where authorities are seeking to lure back tourists scared away by al Qaeda attacks. Tarim is getting a face-lift before it replaces Qayrawan in Tunisia next month as the "capital of Islamic culture", an honour that rotates annually among cities in the Islamic world. Picture taken on February 24, 2010.
