Houthis kidnap the journalist Al-Shawafi, The union demands his release


Al-Houthi militias kidnapped journalist Ihab al-Shawafi on Friday in al-Hawban area, east of Taiz southwestern Yemen.

The Yemeni Journalists Syndicate said in a statment - a copy of which was received by Al-Masdar online - that Al-Houthi militias kidnapped journalist Ihab al-Shawafi in al-Hawban area, east of Taiz, on his way to Sanaa.

The Journalists' Syndicate condemned the kidnapping of Ihab al-Shawafi, and called on the Houthis to quickly release him, not to be persecuted because of his professional identity, and to hold them responsible for his safety.

The Yemeni Journalists' Syndicate also called on all parties to the war in Yemen to stop harassing journalists or getting them into conflicts, and to stop hostility against the press and those working in the field.
