Media workers Mohammed Naser Al-Washali, Abdullah Al-Najjar and Abdullah Al Qadry were killed in two separate attacks in Yemen last week.

The crimes of kidnapping, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearance have increased significantly since the Iranian-backed Houthi militia and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh carried out a coup d’état against Yemen’s legitimate authority and took over the capital Sana’a in September 2014, according to a recent study Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC).

A recent study by Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) has revealed that official and non-official media outlets in Yemen have become platforms for triggering waves of hostility and sectarianism and other fronts of conflict in which each party scores his field victories at the expense of issues of people.

The Yemeni Journalists Syndicate said that it had received information from fellow journalists saying that the journalist Abed al-Mahthari, the editor of the Al-Diyar weekly newspaper, had been kidnapped by the Houthis-Saleh militants in Sanaa.
