Human Rights Minister Mohammed Askar said that the abductees in the prisons of Habra and in the Political Security Bureau of the Houthi militias in Sana'a had not received the necessary health care, after 45 of them had been infected with cholera, the state-run Saba news agency reported.

 

The abductees are placed in dormitories filled with sewage in the basement of the prisons, which increased the number of inmates with epidemics”. Added the minister.

 

The Yemeni minister appealed to the international organization to “quickly see the situation of the abductees, and release them immediately”.
