CAIRO, April 2. /TASS/. The Russian Consulate General in Aden was attacked and looted by Shiite rebels, the Huna Aden news portal reported on Thursday.
It said armed groups of Houthi rebels and allies of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh attacked on Wednesday the Consulate General, breaking the doors open, seizing property and office equipment.
According to eyewitnesses, they took equipment and documents out of the building, loaded them into vehicles and drove away.
Earlier reports said the Russian Consulate General in Aden had been damaged in airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition.
Sources in Aden say that reportedly there were no diplomats in the building during the attack. The Russian Embassy to Yemen has refused to comment on the situation to TASS, saying only that the embassy has been working in an emergency mode for the past three days.
Meanwhile, Russian nationals are getting ready to be evacuated from the conflict-stricken country. A Russian plane in Cairo is waiting for permission to land in Sana’a to airlift diplomats, as well as Russian women married to Yemenis.
It was reported on Wednesday, that Saudi Arabia had turned away the Russian plane despite an earlier arrangement.
