Yemen: Two Europeans arrested during weapons training

Yemeni security forces have arrested two European nationals while they were training to use rifles in a remote high mountain to the south of the capital Sanaa, the Defense Ministry reported on Sunday.

The pair, both nearly at the age of 24 with one of them carrying an Arab
name, were detained in Naqil al-Mashanna area of the Jahran district in the southern province of Dhamar, said the ministry on its website.

The report cited a statement by the Interior Ministry's information center as saying that "the two Europeans were found training with two machine-guns and two pistols."

"The weapons were in the possession of the two young Europeans who belong to the same country," said the report without naming their nationality.

"Both of them have been referred to the security authorities concerned for further interrogations," the report added.
