Militias of the Houthis and Saleh on Monday abducted a journalist, Tayseer alSama'e, from Taiz while he was taking his son to school.
The Yemeni Journalists Syndicate (YJS) condemned the abduction, held the militias responsible for his safety and demanded them to immediately release him.
Al-Sama'e worked as a reporter for a number of Yemen news websites and lately stayed at his home after his salary was suspended as a result of Yemen's deteriorated situation.
Meanwhile, more than fifteen Yemeni journalists have been languishing inside Houthi journalists for more than a year.
Sada Human Right Organization has revealed that health f these journalists, particularly Abdul-Khaliq Emran, seriously deteriorated due to the torture they are subjected to inside the custodies of the Houthis and ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The organization said that Emran suffered pains on his back and he was advised to be taken to hospital, but the militias still refuse to treat him.
Sada held the militias responsible for Emran's safety, calling all human rights organizations to shoulder their responsibility, and demanding to release Emran and other journalists held in custodies of the Houthis and Saleh.
