Yemen: Attacks on journalists continue

Suhail TV cameraman Ahmad Firas was arrested by soldiers from Daylami airbase in Yemen on the afternoon of 12 August as he was driving towards Sanaa with his wife and children, who were released a few hours later. The soldiers, who seized his equipment, gave no reason for his arrest and are still holding him. In another case, several unidentified men tried to stab Mohamed Ayda, the Sanaa bureau chief of the US Arabic-language TV station Al-Hurra, on 10 August.
