YEMENI security forces have detained an Ethiopian opposition leader at Sanaa international airport.
Andargachew Tsegie, second-in-command of Ginbot 7 opposition movement, was arrested while in transit at Sanaa International Airport on June 23, 2014, on his way to Eritrea, the movement said on its official website.
The opposition movement said that efforts with Yemeni authorities to get Andargachew released were fruitless.
It remains unclear why the Ethiopian opposition leader was arrested by Yemeni authorities.
There was no comment from Yemeni or Ethiopian authorities on Andargachew’s detention.
Andargachew has been serving as the Secretary General of the organization since it was founded in 2008.
