The Yemeni army on Monday declared a temporary curfew and state of emergency in a part of the eastern Hadhramaut province, according to a statement issued by military commanders and local authorities in Hadhramaut.
The move, which applies to Hadhramaut’s Dawan directorate, also reportedly involves the deployment of fresh military reinforcements to the area.
