February 28 2000

A beggar in a poor zone of Sana’a died on Wednesday 23 leaving behind a fortune of YR 4 million. Inhabitants of the area were suspicious of his unusual long stay in his room. As they tried to find out what happened to him, they discovered he was dead in his bed that is filled with his life-time’s savings. Although shocked by the death of their father, his three sons expressed their happiness for the inheritance that will let them ”lead a happy life in their village,” they said after dividing the money among themselves in a nearby police station.
It is of course not the first time that a beggar dies leaving behind him such a huge fortune.
