We are heartened to see that the story of the illegal and baseless detention of our Yemeni staff is once again receiving media attention.
We are saddened to confirm that the Houthis have detained another member of our staff.
The outpouring of support for our colleagues is a testament to the many strong relationships they have developed in the course of their work for the embassy for many years to advance the U.S.-Yemen partnership.
We hope you will help us keep our detainees in the public eye.
We also hope our partners in the media will make clear that it is the Houthis who are responsible for the detention of these innocent Yemenis, whom they are using as pawns in this conflict.
