A Yemeni official on Tuesday accused forces from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) of seizing state funds within the japanese Hadhramaut province.

Writing on Twitter, Information Ministry undersecretary Mohamed Qizan mentioned UAE forces “broke into Al-Mukalla seaport in Hadhramaut and looted five containers of cash printed in Russia”.

He, nevertheless, did not specify the quantity allegedly seized by UAE forces.

There was no remark from UAE authorities on the accusation.

For 12 months, the Yemeni banknotes have been printed in Russia and moved to Yemen by sea.

Violence has flared between the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) and authorities forces because the former declared self-rule over Aden and different southern provinces in April.

Yemen has been devastated by a battle that escalated in March 2015 after Iran-backed Houthi rebels seized the capital Sana’a and compelled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee the nation.
