Yemen arrest owner of weapon shipment

6/11/2012 - Yemen's authorities arrested on Monday the owner of a weapon shipment that was sent from Turkey, well-informed sources affirmed.  

Meanwhile, Turkey foreign ministry has denied that it sent a pistol shipment that was seized by the Yemeni authorities at Aden port last week.

"We certainly have not authorised such a shipment of weapons. It is not thinkable to OK such arms exports to countries where conflict risks are high and where it could result in more deaths," the foreign ministry said in a statement.
