MSF Patient Kidnapped and Killed

Médecins Sans Frontières has indefinitely suspended patient admissions at its emergency trauma hospital in Aden, Yemen after armed men stormed the facility and kidnapped a patient who was later found dead, MSF reported.

The patient was waiting to undergo surgery after being injured in clashes between rival groups. His body was found on the grounds of a local school, according to Al Jazeera.

The Aden facility has seen a number of threats and security incidents in recent weeks. At the time of the attack, the hospital—which also serves Hodeidah and Taiz—was operating at full capacity.
