Houthis release journalist after one and a half year kidnapped

عبدالاله عباد

Houthi gunmen released a kidnapped journalist who has been in jails for more than a year and half in Sanaa, a rights source said.

 

The source told Almasdaronline that the Houthis had released the journalist Abdalah Abad, with a probationary guarantee, while his trial continued, pointing out that the Abbad family may have played a fine ransom.

 

The kidnappers abducted Abad, who worked as a reporter for a number of news sites from Midi front about a year and half ago from his shop in the capital, Sana'a, after a tip-off by a person.

 

To date, 20 journalists are still being held in Houthi prisons.
