Businessman kidnapped in Hadramout

HADRAMOUT, March 03 (YPA) – A businessman was kidnapped on Sunday by unknown gunmen in the province of Hadramout, which is under the control of the coalition in eastern Yemen.

Local sources quoted that unknown gunmen in military uniforms intercepted businessman Mohsen Bin Hussein al-Attas on the road controlled by pro-Saudi Islah factions leading to Seiyun and took him to an unknown destination.

The sources suggested that al-Attas was kidnapped by military leaders loyal to the coalition in order to blackmail and fabricate malicious charges against him amid the absence of security in the coast and Valley directorates alike, while the fate of al-Attas is still unknown until the moment.
