Tribal Sheikh returned dead body after kidnapped by Houthis since 2010

A local source in Amran governorate, north of the capital Sana'a, said the Houthi rebels have handed over the dead body of Mohsen Maaqal, a tribal leader and Secretary General of the Local Council of Harf Sufian district, to his family after 7 years of abduction and disappearance with the Houthi militants.

 

The source said that the Houthis were repeatedly denying holding this prominent tribal leader and his guards in Amran.

 

The Houthis kidnapped Mohsen Maaqal along with his guards from Darb Zaid area of Harf Sufian district early 2010, during the sixth war between the Houthi rebels and government forces.

 

Maaqal's fate was unknown, until he appeared as a dead body with signs of torture on it. The incident stirred the outrage and condemnation of a number of Harf Sufian leaders. Maj. Gen. Saghir bin Aziz, Deputy Chief of Staff of the National Army, also posted on Facebook that the Houthis have executed Maaqal.
