Yemeni media have blamed the UAE occupation in the southern port city of Aden for the recent Aden bombings.
Under the headline “This is the UAE’s most prominent man and the first person found to be involved in the bombing of Aden airport,” the Watan al-Ghad newspaper published a picture of a person named Shalal Ali Shayea .
The paper, as well as other newspapers held him responsible for Wednesday’s Aden bombings.
The newspaper quoted local sources as saying that Shalal Shayea, who is the Military Attaché at Yemen’s embassy in the United Arab Emirates, was involved in the bombings that hit Aden International Airport just before the arrival of the Hadi government formed in Riyadh.
Shalal Shayea left Aden International Airport right before the three consecutive explosions rocked the airport.
The source said that Shayea disembarked from the plane before the government delegation did, and left the airport immediately on a private armoured vehicle minutes before the explosion, which causes suspicion on his possible involvement in the attack.
