March 1 2004

Yemeni security forces arrested local boats loaded with weapons in the Arabian Sea near Al Mukala seaport recently.
Smugglers were attempting to load weapons onto large boats in order to ship it to Somalia.
The recent trend is that weapons are smuggled from Yemen to neighbouring countries.
In the past many weapons have been smuggled to Yemen through Somalia and the African horn.
