Gas trucks seized in Marib [Archives:2003/629/Local News]

March 31 2003

Gas trucks have been still seized by a number of tribesmen on the Marib-Sana'a highway.
The seizures of those gas trucks have come under the pretext of pressurizing the authority to oblige the merchants to give money to the tribesmen there.
The debts have been estimated at USD 3 million for those merchants.
The seizure of the gas trucks by the tribesmen in Marib constitutes a teething problem threatening the population of the capital Sana'a.
