SANA'A, Dec. 26 (Saba) - The Yemen Oil Company (YOC) announced on Friday the arrival of a 'Baxter' ship carrying 29,475 tons of gasoline to the port of Hodeida, after being arbitrarily detained by the aggression for 104 days.

The YOC said in a statement received by Saba that the total fines accumulated on the ship for its detention amounted to $2.288,000.

The statement explained that the laboratory testing procedures are currently being completed to ensure that the ship's cargo conforms to the approved specifications so that the unloading process can begin.
