Ali Nasser Hasani, ousted as president of South Yemen in a bloody civil war last January, was quoted as saying that about 20,000 people have fled the Arabian Peninsula nation. In an interview with the United Arab Emirates' newspaper Al Wahda, Hasani was also quoted as claiming that thousands of his follwers have been detained and tortured under the new government of Haider abu Kakr Attas. The newspaper did not say where or when it interviewed Hasani, whose whereabouts have been unknown since the January coup.
