About this work
Jail-birds under lock and key in the native prison of Lahej. About sixteen miles of Aden lies the district of Lahej, inhabited by the Abdali tribe. A glimpse into the criminal jail provides a gruesome enough picture. The majority of the prisoners wear iron anklets; those accused of murder must carry in addition heavy iron weights attached to an iron collar. The door in the centre gives access to the condemned cell. The bullet holes in the wall, at the height of a man's head, tell their own story.
