Houthis abduct young journalist in Sanaa

Houthi rebels in Yemen have been holding a young journalist abducted in Sanaa for more than a week.

After detaining Younis Abdul Sallam, the Iran-backed Houthis waited more than 10 days before informing a local lawyer of his whereabouts.

“Younis is being held in the intelligence service office,” said a relative who asked to remain anonymous. “We do not know why they detained him and they refuse to answer our calls.”
