Yemen reopens historic Cairo Castle in Taiz

August 28, 2018
The historical site in the strategically important city in southern Yemen was used as a barracks for the last four years.

The Yemeni government has reopened the historic Cairo Castle in war-torn Taiz to visitors, just days after regaining control of the site from the UAE-backed Abu al-Abbas Brigades.

For the last four years, the castle has been used as a barracks.
