Shaabi as Prime Minister in 1969.

Faysal Abd al-Latif al-Shaabi (Arabic: فيصل عبد الطيف الشعبي‎) (1935–2 April 1970[1]) was the Prime Minister of the People's Republic of South Yemen from 6 April 1969 until the political coup that led to Salim Ali Rubai's ascendance to power on 22 June 1969. Al-Shaabi was appointed Prime Minister by President Qahtan Mohammed al-Shaabi.[2]. After being ousted, al-Shaabi was kept under house arrest, but was removed to a detention camp at the end of March 1970. On 3 April 1970, the government radio in Aden broadcast a report that al-Shaabi "was fatally wounded when he tried to escape the detention camp" [3].
