Yemen said on Sunday the pistols shipment which was seized in the port city of Aden was shipped for the Yemeni trader Rashid Saleh Abdu Al-Badani who lives in the capital Sanaa, the official news agency Saba reported quoting a statement by chairman of the customs authority.
Muhammad Mansour Zamam, the chairman, said the ship, May OMF, which carried the Turkish-made pistols originated in Turkey on October 6 passing through the Saudi city of Jeddah and arrived in Aden October 20.
“The pistols were hidden inside biscuit boxes and was discovered after the shipt left the free zone container terminal to the customs port on Eid day,” he said.
“When the authorities checked the cargo with advanced systems, they discovered the arms which were registered as biscuits and other foodstuffs,” he said.
The cargo included 246 pistols, 2925 pistol frames, 2445 cartridges, and about 7998 spare parts of pistols, Zamam said in a press statement after deputy interior ministry held talks with officials from the customs office in Aden.
The pistol cargo was seized on Saturday as Yemen is struggling to cope with big challenges topped by insecurity that were deepened by the latest developments, mainly the 2011 uprising.
