Commander of the UAE-hired Blackwater militias Macias Baiknebah was killed in Taiz, Southwestern Yemen.
Baikenbah, a Mexican national, intended to reach al-Amri military base near Bab al-Mandab region with the support of Sudanese mercenaries but was hunted by the Yemeni army and popular forces, al-Ahd news website quoted a military source.
A sum of 14 Blackwater mercenaries, including a British, a French, an Australian and six Colombians were killed in an attack on al-Amri military base in Zobab region in Ta’iz province near the Bab al-Mandeb Strait.
In a program launched by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and now run by the Emirati military, the force of 450 Latin American troops – mostly made up of Colombian fighters, but also including Chileans, Panamanians and Salvadorans – adds a new and surprising element to the already chaotic mix of forces from foreign governments, armed tribes, terrorist networks and Yemeni militias that are currently embroiled in the Middle Eastern nation, Fox News reported.
