Aden (Arabic: [ʿAdan) is a city in Yemen, 170 kilometers east of Bab-el-Mandeb. Aden is a natural harbor, made of a volcanic peninsula and was first used by the ancient Awsan Kingdom between the 5th and 7th centuries BC. Aden has a population of approximately 398,399 and is located at 12.779444°N 45.03667°E / 12.779444; 45.03667. Aden consists of several small towns: a port city, an industrial city known as "Little Aden" with its large oil refineries, and Madinat ash-Sha'b, the seat of government. Two satellite cities, Khormaksar and Sheikh Othman, are located north of the old city, with the international airport located between the two satellite cities. The oil refinery and tanker port of Little Aden was operated by "British Petroleum" (now "Beyond Petroleum"). Aden was the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Yemen until its union with North Yemen and was later declared a free trade zone.
