Indonesian maid cleared in death of 3-month-old boy

An Indonesian maid accused of murdering the three-month-old boy, Mishari, was cleared of charges yesterday by the General Court in Dammam.
The court said three medical reports provided on Mishari’s condition before his death didn’t prove that Mishari was poisoned. The maid never confessed of poisoning him. Local media claimed the medical reports showed that Mishari was carrying a genetic disease that caused his death.
The session where the unidentified maid was cleared of charges was attended by representatives from the Indonesian Embassy, Human Rights Commission, the maid’s lawyer and Mishari’s father.

Saudi aid agency steps up relief work on Yemen’s west coast

  • KSRelief has carried out more than 200 relief programs and projects had been carried out by the center in Yemen
  • Yemeni government bewails world silence on abuses committed by Iranian-backed Houthi militia 

JEDDAH: King Salman Relief and Humanitarian Aid Center (KSRelief) has distributed 2,000 bags of wheat to displaced people from the western coast of Hodeida governorate to Aden as part of welfare operations in Yemen.
Yemen’s Minister of Local Administration and Higher Relief Committee chairman Abdul Raqeeb Fatah said KSRelief was seen as a beacon for humanitarian work.
More than 200 relief programs and projects had been carried out by the center in Yemen.
The Yemeni government condemned the silence of the UN and the international community on abuses committed by Iranian-backed Houthi militia against people in the Al-Hima area of Taiz governorate.
Rebels had continued indiscriminate shelling of Hima’s villages, forcing people from their homes, Fatah said. Fatah said the militia’s crimes in Taiz districts were contrary to international law. He called on the global community and humanitarian organizations to take a firm position on all Houthi crimes.
Yesterday, KSRelief distributed 3,500 cartons of dates in the villages of Izzala Al-Jumah in Al-Mukha directorate in Taiz governorate, benefiting 21,000 people.
