Newsline: US urges Yemen rebels to release its embassy employees

The United States on Wednesday called for the release of 12 embassy employees held by Houthi rebels in Yemen. “Today, we mark a somber anniversary. One year ago today, the Houthis began detaining Yemeni staff of the US Embassy in Sanaa,” US Ambassador Steven Fagin said in a statement. “The Houthis went to their homes in the middle of the night, rounded them up, and took them away,” he added. “It’s time to bring them home. I call on the Houthis to release all of them immediately so that they can be reunited with their families,” the envoy said.
