Huge Fires Erupt After a Shaking Explosion at Aden Oil Refinery


A fire broke out in one of the storage tanks at the Aden Refinery Company, south of Yemen.

“At 7 pm last Friday, a fire broke out in one of the small storage tanks that only had remains of petroleum derivatives,” a statement from Aden refinery company said.
