CAIRO, October 31 (Itar-Tass) —— A doctor from Uzbekistan Abdudkhamid Yun was released by representatives of local tribes in Yemen on Sunday, the Al Arabia television news channel reported on Monday.
The doctor was already handed over to the mediator and is on the way to the Yemeni capital of Sana’a.
Uzbek citizen Abdudkhamid Yun was abducted last March. He worked as a doctor at the hospital in the city of Atak, which is a district center in the Yemeni province Shabva. The kidnappers demanded to bring to justice the officials, who ordered an air strike on the village of El Majaala in December 2009. The Al Qaeda militants reportedly entrenched in the village. Then several tens of civilians were killed in the air strike. It is unclear yet whether the Yemeni government agreed to fulfill the demand of the kidnappers.
The Yemeni tribes, which are fighting against the current rule in the country, abduct often the foreigners for ransom and pressure on the authorities. They commit these crimes to make the republican authorities release their relatives from the prison or make economic demands to the government. For the last 15 years over 200 foreigners were abducted. Most of them were released.
