In protest over kidnapping diplomat, KSA consulate shut down in Aden The Saudi Arabia consulate based in the southern port city of Aden was closed down on Saturday in protest over kidnapping the KSA deputy consul Abdullah Al-Khaladi whose location still so far untraceable. The decision to close the consulate office in the city was taken a few days ago, and that the decision came into effect on Saturday. It will be closed indefinitely, Marib Press electronic newspaper reported, citing unnamed official in the consulate.The closure comes after 15 days of abducting the high-profile Saudi diplomat by unidentified gunmen in front of his house. He was kidnapped on his last day of his five-year tenure in Yemen.Tribal negotiations meant to secure a safe release of Al-Khaladi was disrupted according to some tribal dignitaries and up to now no one knows his exact whereabouts.Al-Kaladi is believed to have been moved to a mountainous area between the city of Aden and province of Abyan. Local media outlets reported that kidnapping al-Kaladi is related to a personal issue with local Aden family. They claimed that he was connected with civil marriage to a local girl and that her brothers kidnapped him demanding official marriage documents as well as a sum of money. However, Saudi officials dismissed such reports as baseless and groundless, and have stressed that the diplomat enjoyed high moral standards and was loved by locals.When he was kidnapped he did not have any escort and that goes against the Riyadh Ministry of Foreign Affairs regulations and instructions.
