ADEN, South Yemen — A group of South Yemeni refugees has returned home after nearly 18 months in exile in Yemen and surrendered a large quantity of weapons, including rocket-propelled grenades and mines, a Security Ministry source said Saturday.

He did not give the number of people in the group. President Haider abu Bakr Attas said from 5,000 to 6,000 South Yemenis fled to Yemen in the wake of factional fighting within the Marxist ruling party last year in which Ali Nasser Hasani was ousted as president.
