Ashal wrote a letter to the Speaker’s Office of the parliament that included questions to the government on existence of containers loaded with 4,900 tons of ammonium nitrates which have been stored at the port of Aden for three years.
The letter included questions on the real quantity of the ammonium nitrate, purpose of their import, and security measures taken to prevent any harm.
