Oman receives injured Yemenis, helps secure release of American detained in Yemen

Muscat - 

An official in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Sunday that in response to the Royal Order of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said to continue providing support to citizens of Yemen, the sultanate received a new batch of wounded Yemenis for treatment. A special Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) aircraft brought the wounded from Sanaa to Muscat.

In implementation of the Royal Directive of His Majesty the Sultan, after a request by the US government to secure the release of its citizens in custody in Yemen, Oman after coordinating with the concerned authorities in Sanaa, secured the release of an American on Sunday.

The American arrived in Oman in the same special flight operated by RAFO, in preparation for his return to the US.
