Yemeni airports reopened after strike

Yemeni transport minister Waed Batheeb has announced the reopening of the country’s international airports after a brief closure on Monday due to a strike by workers at the civil aviation authority, Reuters has reported. Airports were closed earlier in the day as workers went on strike in response to a dispute with the finance ministry over the aviation authority’s independence. The finance ministry froze the authority’s funds, making it unable to pay workers’ wages.
