UAE denounces Somalia seizure of its plane, cash

DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates on Tuesday denounced Somalia's seizure of a civilian aircraft this week and its seizure of money on board, according to a statement on the state news agency WAM.

"Money allocated to support the Somali army and trainees was seized at gunpoint by Somali security personnel, who disrespected some members of the UAE forces," it said.

Some $9.6 million in cash was taken from the plane that had landed from the UAE at Mogadishu airport, police and government sources had said.
