May 7 – Several tribesmen found the body of a man laying on one of the mountains of Wadi (valley) Habad situated between Sana'a and Marib governorates.
A tribal source said that the body had been laying there for probably three months.
It is still unknown if the man died of natural causes or he was murdered.
The criminal investigation has custody of the remains of the body in order to determine through autopsy and other DNA testing the identity of the man and the motives and causes of the man's death.
The source doubted that the man was from the region. He speculated that the body was transported from another part of the country before it was dumped in that sight. A Russian made pistol was also found next to the body.
