Yemen LNG has reported in a statement that the company has learned from media reports that suspected al Qaeda militants killed four Yemeni soldiers in their sleep early on Sunday in an attack on forces guarding the country’s only liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal.
“Yemen LNG denies that such incident took place at its Balhaf facility. However, Yemen LNG was informed by Police Authorities that there was an incident involving the Army and local tribesmen that took place around 60KM from Balhaf on the road between Mukalla-Aden,” Yemen LNG said
“Yemen LNG deplores to see such inaccurate reporting which puts pressure on the Company and its Stakeholders“, the company added.
