Arab coalition forces rescue two French journalists from Houthis in Yemen

The two freed French journalists

The Arab coalition forces have rescued two French journalists who were lost in areas under the control of the Houthi militias in Yemen, according to Al Arabiya. 

The two French journalists arrived at Riyadh air base.

The journalists were part of a delegation coming from Saada to Hajjah province, and the Houthi militias kidnapped them on Thursday (November 2nd).

The Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to try to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after the Houthis, backed by troops loyal to former Yemeni leader Ali Abdullah Saleh marched on Hadi’s southern headquarters in Aden forcing him to flee.
