Security forces target journalists in Yemen

Yemeni authorities detained the editor of Al-Shahid at a checkpoint on 25 April. Abdel Aziz al-Majidi was prevented from entering the Taiz province to report on the region. In a separate incident on the same day, security forces encircled the house of Mohammed al-Louzi, a reporter for the daily Akhbar al-Youm. Al-Louzi has been highly critical of the Yemeni government’s response to protests in the country.
