SANAA - Yemen shut its international airports on Monday after workers at its civil aviation authority went on strike, officials at the transport ministry and airports said.

The strike was due to a dispute with the finance ministry over the independence of the civil aviation authority, an official at the transport ministry said. The finance ministry froze the authority's funds, he said.

"The strike is ongoing until our demands are met," the official said, declining to be named because he was not authorized to speak publicly to media. Officials at Sanaa, Aden and Mukalla airports confirmed the shutdown
