SANA’A: Yemen police have stopped potential terrorist attacks by foiling an attempt to smuggle explosive materials through Sana’a airport.
An anonymous security source said that police at Sana’a airport had confiscated a package of explosives disguised as juice and soft drink. The source boasted that the country’s biggest airport managed to discover the items that passed through many other international airports.
Khalid Al Shaif, deputy director of the airport, also said that the airport’s police had previously aborted many bids to smuggle weapons, chemical and explosive materials, and bomb machines. Al Shaif said that the smugglers used many tactics to conceal the illegal materials such as dipping them into honey bottles or, as with weapons, dismantling them and wrapping them with tin.
