Houthi militia set ablaze a library of oppositionist mosque in north Yemen

 

Houthi militants have set ablaze a library in an Sunni mosque in Hajjah , north of Yemen,  several media reported quoting local sources.

The Shia militants stormed Al-Sunna Mosque in Hajjah city, confiscated the books and set them ablaze.

Activists called it "a crime with precedents in the militia's history of destroying schools, universities and places of worship."

Hamdan Al-Alaya, a journalist, called the library burning "a  holocaust of books," likening it to the Nazi book burnings of May 1933.
