Yemen’s Houthis Sentence 30 to Death on Espionage Charges

A Yemeni lawyer says a rebel-controlled court has sentenced 30 people to death on charges they committed espionage for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the rebels.

Abdel-Majeed Sabra says the criminal court in the capital Sanaa on Tuesday acquitted six others in the case, which dates back to 2016.

The verdicts against the 30, mainly academics, professionals and students from the Muslim Brotherhood group in Yemen, the Islah party, can be appealed.

The 30 were also accused of providing intelligence to the Saudi-led coalition fighting the rebels, known as Houthis, since 2015.
