The Yemen Ministry of Interior tightened Monday the security measures in seven provinces where sabotage and terrorist acts are expected to happen.
The Ministry said in a statement published on its website (http://www.moi.gov.ye/) that the purpose of the measure is to foil any possible terrorist or sabotage acts in the provinces of Hudhrmout, Sayoun, Abyan, Shabwah, Mareb, Al Jawf and Sa’ada.
The Ministry also said that the security forces are continuing the chase of terrorists and saboteurs in those provinces.
The step came one day after President Ali Abdullah Saleh urged the senior security and military officials to raise alertness for maintaining security and stability.
