220 African migrants kidnapped by Houthis in Sanaa


More than 220 African refugees have been kidnapped from outside UN offices in Sanaa and taken to an unknown destination.

Of the migrants who were kidnapped, 55 were women, Al Arabiya, quoting local sources, reported on Saturday.

The migrants had previously organized vigils in front of the UNHC for Refugees building, calling for a probe into an incident in March during which more than 40 African migrants were killed in a detention center in Sanaa, reports Arab News.
