Protests against deteriorated services in Aden

Electricity has gradually returned to the interim capital of Aden, the internationally-recognized government said Saturday, following fury protests coupled with unrest acts blocking main streets in the port city.
"One of the purchased power plants has been repaired, minutes after the al-Hiswah power plant was maintained," the Aden-based Saba quoted deputy minister of electricity and energy as saying.
"The al-Hiswah power plant recovered 55 megawatt of its capacity, but could be increased in the coming hours," Abdul Hakim Fadhil added. "This will reduce the power-cut hours."
Late Friday and early Saturday, Aden saw protests against deteriorated services, blackouts in particular since last Tuesday following heavy rains that left massive damages.
Hundreds of people took to streets of most of Aden districts in protest of blackouts and bad services in general, said local sources.
"The protestors burnt used wheels, blocking main roads, and tried to set fire to government offices," the sources added.
