LLA's President, Mrs. Sahar Noman expressed her regret at the massive presence of waste and garbage on the beach, describing the view as 'disgusting'. She urged the people in Aden, in particular the sea goers to change their behaviour in environmental matters and adopt good habits to protect the environment.
