Alsahwa Net- The United Nations (UN) Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths said on Friday that talks are underway to add the detained journalists in the Houthis-run prison to the exchanging lists of prisoners for release.
The Houthis rebels sentenced on 11 April four detained journalists to death on and imprisonment of six others who have been in confinement for five years.
Griffiths said in media statements that his office works for inclusion of the death ruled journalists to the exchanging lists of prisoners for the upcoming release.
He said that the death ruling was shocking and called for distancing the humanitarian issues from politicization.
Several local and international organizations have condemned the death ruling against the detained journalists and demanded an immediate release of all the detained journalists.
The International Federation of Journalists said last week that killers of journalists will be brought for justice at the International Criminal Court.
