Separatist militias arrest Sudanese mercenaries

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia has detained several Sudanese soldiers at a military post in Lahj province, local sources reported on Monday.

According to the sources, the STC force at the Rabat checkpoint detained three buses with a capacity of 24 passengers, carrying Sudanese mercenary soldiers who were heading for the coalition military camp in Aden.

According to the sources, the buses left al-Anad military base after the Saudi-led coalition asked for more reinforcements to Aden, as the city has been witnessing an uprising demanding better services and the payment of salaries to state employees.

The sources pointed out that the detention of Sudanese mercenaries continued until the Saudi command issued an order to let them pass and enter Aden
