ADEN, Sept. 19 (YPA) – Militants of the UAE-funded Southern Transitional Council (STC) kidnapped on Tuesday one of the most famous businessmen in the city of Aden, south of Yemen.

Sources familiar with the matter said the businessmen, Abdul Karim Ahmed Al-Shaibani, who belongs to Taiz province, was kidnapped from his residence in a hotel in the coalition-held city.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry affiliated with the coalition in Taiz denounced in a statement the kidnapping of Al-Shaibani from one of Aden’s hotels, stressing that Aden has become an investment-repulsive environment.

The statement called on the STC factions to arrest the perpetrators, bring them to justice, and prevent the recurrence of such offensive events against Yemen.
