March 25 2004

A security source in Marib Governorate said this week that the security forces were able to close entrance points to Marib and to prevent the carrying of weapons inside the city. The number of weapons deposited at the security checkpoints reached 600. These measures are part of procedures to ease and prevent revenge cases, which commonly takes place in city streets and sometimes lead to military confrontation between tribesmen and security forces.
