February 7 2000

Local sources in Eritrea have reported the existence of a person in an Eritrean prison named Al-Sheibani, believed to be the army lieutenant Ali Ahmad Seif Al-Shaibani who confronted the Eritrean invaders in Hanish Island.
Diplomatic sources say that 46 Yemeni police officers were released from Eritrean prisons but they do not say anything about Al-Shaibani and whether he is dead or alive.
Eritrea has requested the International Court to tell Yemen that it asks for explanations of some points in the latest arbitration between the two countries.
