Security forces in Aden released on Saturday members of the Labor Union Committee who were arrested at the Aden Container Terminal over the strike that was held by Aden port workers.
They were freed after a week in custody by the governors order.
However, the workers at the Aden Container Terminal have been striking for eight straight days in protest on feared injustice that they may have after the station was handed over to DP World.
They claim they know nothing about the agreement under which the terminal was taken over by the DP world and can't decide over issues that concern them.
The workers have launched stages since the agreement was signed early this month, describing the deal as unfair and harms the interests of the whole country.
