ADEN - A Yemeni secessionist leader was detained on Wednesday when his plane from Britain landed at Aden airport, a fellow leader of the separatist movement told Reuters.

"A group of armed men boarded the plane when it landed and arrested Ahmed Abdullah al-Hassani," said Hussein Zayd bin Yahia, who was waiting for Hassani at the airport. "They took him and disappeared. They were in three cars."

The identity of the armed men was unclear but Yahia suggested they belonged to Yemeni security services. There was no immediate comment from Yemen government officials.
