This incident occurred in the Red Sea port of Aden. Aden has been under the control of Sunni forces since it was retaken from the Shia Houthis in July 2015. It required a four-month battle and help of forces from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to secure the city.

Family members and a detainee say Yemeni security forces this week opened fire on detainees in the southern port city of Aden, wounding 12.

According to the detainee and two family members visiting their jailed kin, the incident took place on Sunday in the Beir Ahmed 2 detention center. The facility is part of an anti-terror campaign led by the United Arab Emirates, which set up a network of secret prisons to hold hundreds of terror detainees.
