Yemeni authorities said on Monday that 13 members of a kidnapping ring have been arrested over involvement in a spate of abductions in the Arab Peninsula country.

In a statement, the Interior Ministry said that the detainees had been involved in several cases of kidnapping foreigners and merchants in Yemen, describing the arrests as a "distinguished security success".

Yemen has struggled to maintain law and order since the ouster of autocrat Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2012.
