The Yemeni woman arrested in the investigation into mail bombs found in Dubai and England has nothing to do with the terror plot, her lawyer said yesterday.
“We believe she is innocent and has been tricked,” said Abdulrehman Barman, a lawyer at the National Organisation for Defending Rights and Freedoms, in Sana’a.
Last night Yemen authorities released Hanan Mohammed al Samawi, a 22-year-old University of Sana’a student. She agreed to make herself available for further questioning.
Police had arrested Ms al Samawi after her mobile phone number was found on a receipt linked to the packages dropped at FedEx and UPS offices in Sana’a and found on planes in Dubai and England after a tip-off from intelligence officials in Saudi Arabia.
Hundreds of students at the university had protested yesterday against Ms al Samawi’s arrest and demanded that she be released.
