DUBAI: A Saudi diplomat kidnapped in Yemen by al-Qaeda has urged his relatives to stage protests to push Riyadh to answer the demands of his abductors, in a new video posted online. Abdullah al-Khalidi, Saudi’s deputy consul in the southern port city of Aden who was kidnapped nearly 17 months ago, appears in the video wearing a traditional white thawb cloak and sporting a long beard. The video, which was posted online on Sunday, was released by al-Qaeda’s Al-Malahem Media and is dated back to August. Khalidi last appeared in a similar video message in April.
