Yemeni forces foil port suicide attack

Sana’a: An official in the Yemeni army said that Yemeni forces foiled a suicide attack last night, aimed at the LNG export port in the province of Shabwa in the south east of the country.

The official said that a booby-trapped boat approached from international waters, and passed security lines into Yemeni territorial waters in the area surrounding the Port of Balhaf.
The port’s radars and surveillance cameras spotted the boat when it bypassed the security lines, and naval forces moved immediately towards the boat and opened fire, causing it to explode and sink.
The identity and number of those on the boat isn’t yet known.
