Prominent tribal leader calls for separation of Hadhramaut

A prominent tribal sheikh in Hadhramaut called for the separation of the province from both the Republic of Yemen and the independence movement in Southern Yemen.

Tribal Sheikh Abdullah al-Kathiry, a close associate of Islah party leader Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, said that Hadhramaut’s sons would only accept an autonomous province of Hadhramaut.

He pointed out that Hadhramaut “will not be affiliated with any political party,” explaining that if Yemen were to be split into two territories, Hadhramaut will become a third one.
