DUBAI: Four journalists who were captured by Houthis, said the militia group subjected them to a catalogue of torture, state news agency Saba reported.
The journalists – Hisham Tarmoum, Hassan Annab, Isam Balghaith and Hisham al-Yousofi – said they experienced psychological and physical torture at the hands of their captors and were given dirty food and water.
They said they were beaten, deprived of sleep, and hanged for long periods.
The tortured journalists were speaking at a session organized by the Yemeni Journalist Syndicate in cooperation with the National Organization for Yemeni Media men on Thursday.
They urged the international community to intervene and “rescue other journalists” who are still detained by the Houthis.
