Fuel shortage sparks outrage in Southern Yemen
Angry popular protests erupted on Sunday in the city of Aden (southern Yemen), protesting against the deterioration of services and the rise in the prices of fuel.
Eyewitnesses said that hundreds of angry protesters set fire to tires and closed the main streets in the Mansoura district of Aden, in protest against the deterioration of services and the rise in food and fuel prices.
The protesters vowed to escalate if the government did not respond to their demands and to control the process of manipulating food prices, which witnessed an insane rise, as well as providing basic services, foremost of which is the electricity service, which is witnessing a noticeable increase in the hours of interruption.
The protesters also demanded the provision of fuel at the previous prices, after the price of a 20-liter canister of gasoline jumped to YR26,000.
