The security commission of Aden Governorate has imposed a curfew from 8pm to 5am on Aden City after militants laid siege on the seaport in Mualla district in a bid to force out the government security force. The curfew will come into force today [Monday].
The move, made at an emergency meeting chaired by Governor of Aden, Brigadier Aidarous Qasim Al Zubaidi, is aimed at countering groups which seek to undermine security and stability in Aden, according to the state Yemeni News Agency.
Spokesperson of Aden Governorate, Nizar Anwar, said the government's military and security forces restored full control on the port and re-deployed in the area.
