Tracking Abdullah

OK, now I need some help here. Does anyone out there read Arabic?

See, the Abir thing got to me. I am now deeply curious about Lazer Brody's picture of the Aluf Abir's uncles, the fine young Yemeni men guarding Abdullah ibn Hussein in this photo.

I went trawling, and found this photo. As you can see, it seems to be the same photo, except that the new site is showing a less cropped version with what are probably the original edges. And as you can see, it gives the name of the Emir in question (without the 'h' at the end, which most people use in English--Lazer doesn't use it either, interestingly), and the year.

But I can't read the website. Someone, tell me what THEY say it is!
