Yemen: Houthis freed nearly 300 prisoners

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Yemeni Hussite rebels released 290 prisoners, the International Committee of the Red Cross reports on Monday.

The Red Cross has facilitated the release of prisoners, the organization notes. Thus, the ICRC helped to confirm the personal information of prisoners, and also organized their return home.

Among those released there were 42 people who were in the detention center for coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia in early September. Then more than 100 people died as a result of the blow.
