Angry protesters cut streets in al-Mukalla to protest currency deterioration and lack of fuel

Scores of angry protesters cut through the streets of al-Mukalla, the center of Hadramawt province, in protest at the ongoing collapse of the local currency and the lack of oil derivatives, eyewitnesses said Sunday.

Witnesses told Al-Masdar online that the protesters blocked the passage of cars in the area of al-Arbaeen and a number of other areas, and lifted slogans denouncing the Yemeni government, the central bank of Yemen and local authorities.

The cities of Hadramawt and the provinces of the country are witnessing a total lack of oil derivatives two weeks ago, and the price of one liter of fuel reached about 1,500 riyals on the black market.

In conjunction with the fuel crisis, the local currency continues to collapse, and the dollar price has reached 650 riyals.
