Some 60-70 Bangladesh nationals got stuck in Aden city of war-torn Yemen as the fight is going there with rebels surrounding the city, reports BBC Bangla on Monday.Quoting Bangladesh national Emdadul Hossain, the report said the situation in Yemen is worsening fast. “At the house where live in Aden city people are staying with guns on its ground floor. They’re locals. They’ve taken position to counter Houthi,” the BBC report quoted Hossain as saying. It said some 50 people were killed in the war over the last 24 hours. Hossain also said bomb attacks are taking place within two-three kilometers of his residence. “We’re hearing the bomb blasts. We can’t come out of the house. There has been a water crisis. Shops and offices are closed. There’s no government or administration in Aden,” he said.He also said they are in touch with the officials of Bangladesh Embassy in Kuwait. “They’re informing us that they are finding ways to take us out from here.” Another Bangladeshi, Zahirul Islam Bulbul, who works in an export-import company in Yemen capital Sana’a said most of the shops and offices are closed and there is frequent power disruption. Quoting him, the BBC Bangla report said the Saudi air-strikes continued on government establishment and other places. “We’re not safe here.” A Bangladesh team from its mission in Kuwait is now in Djibouti and so far communicated with Bangladesh nationals in two cities — Aden and Sana’a in Yemen, according to an official at the Foreign Ministry here. Bangladeshis will be taken to Djibouti from Aden by ship and then be brought back home by air while Bangladesh nationals staying in Sana’a will be taken to Djibouti by air. Some 1500-3000 Bangladesh nationals are living in Yemen, and all of them are not interested to come back home, according to Foreign Ministry here.
