Yemen president vows to punish kidnappers
Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh met on Sunday the former German diplomat Juergen Chrobog and his family who were freed on Saturday after three days in custody in Shabwa. According to Saba, he assured that kidnapping "is irresponsible and inhumane practice all Yemeni people denounce it."
Saleh said, Yemenis "are hospitable and they respect their guests, pledging that the kidnappers would be punished."
"Such kidnapping operations affect the reputation and economy of Yemen ... we will eliminate kidnappings as we eradicated terror," Saleh stated.
