Article Summary: Fadhli Tribes Threaten More than a week has passed since a Central-Security patrol fatally wounded two young unarmed soldiers while they were guarding a contested plot of land in Khormaksar, Aden. The land belongs to the Dhamar director of security, and is contested by someone who knows the head of the Aden Central Security organ. The families of the two dead soldiers refuse to receive their bodies from the city morgue until the assailants, including their leaders, are brought to justice. They are threatening, along with their ally the Fadhli tribe, to block the major roads in the area until justice is served.
