Tribesmen in Aden, 1966 (c)
Photograph, Aden Emergency (1963-1968), 1966 (c).
Many Aden residents as well as tribesmen from the hinterland resented the British military presence there. Egged on by President Nasser of Egypt, they formed the National Liberation Front (NLF) in Yemen, which itself had designs on Aden and its hinterland. An insurgency against British rule known as the Aden Emergency soon began.
