  • Description

    TENSION RAN HIGH IN ADEN LAST WEEK AFTER GRENADE EXPLOSION INJURED FIVE PEOPLE IN THE RIOT-TORN SHEIKH OTHMAN DISTRICT. SOLDIERS, HOLDING WEAPONS AT THE READY, JOINED POLICE AS THEY MOVED THROUGH THE STREETS SEARCHING FOR ARMS AND WATCHING FOR FURTHER INCIDENTS.

    POLICE HAD TO USE TEAR GAS ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AS CROWDS OF ANGRY DEMONSTRATORS MOVED THROUGH THE STREETS. FROM THE CROWD, A GRENADE WAS TOSSED INTO POLICE COMPOUND AND A BRITISH SOLDIER AND TWO ARAB BOYS WERE INJURED.

    THE DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN CENTRED NEAR A ROAD LEADING TO A DETENTION CENTRE WHERE PEOPLE SUSPECTED OF ASSOCIATING WITH THE ANTI-BRITISH FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF SOUTH YEMEN (FLOSY) ARE DETAINED. RIOTERS HAVE ALSO ATTEMPTED TO BURN DOWN THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE INTER-DENOMINATIONAL RED SEA MISSION - AND NOISY DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN GOING ON OUTSIDE THE POLICE STATION AT SHEIKH OTHMAN.

    SOLDIERS AND POLICE HAVE SEARCHED CARS AND DRIVERS FOR CONCEALED ARMS - AND TENSION IS REPORTED STILL RUNNING HIGH IN THE AREA.
