On this day, 21 March, in 2016 a Houthi sniper shot dead Mohammed al-Yamani a freelance reporter silencing him forever. On the day, he was covering raging battles between government forces and Houthi rebels besieging Taiz city from its western side, al-Dhabab. Four other journalists sustained various injuries by Houthi bullets that day.
Al-Yamani had been covering the Arab Spring protests in 2011 and all events ever since. Yemeni journalists still bear the brunt of the radical militia's atrocities against unarmed activists and general civilians.
